Prime Minister Modi, however, was not the only Indian politician to congratulate Harris for achieving the historic feat. Leader of Congress in Lok Sabha, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhary also tweeted, "Bharat ki beti Kamala Harris is destined to lead the oldest democracy in the world USA as a Vice President and a probable President of that great country in the near future."
The 56-year-old Harris emerged as a leading voice on racial injustice and police reform after African-American man George Floyd was killed by police in Minneapolis. She marched with protestors on Washington streets and won over some skeptical liberals.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden has become the 46th President of the United States with 284 electoral college votes. Biden, a former Vice-President in the Obama administration and a veteran senator, will be the oldest person to become the US President. Meanwhile, Republican incumbent Donald Trump has refused to concede defeat and threatened legal action on ballot counting.
