By J.V. Lakshmana Rao

As Indian-Americans in the US, many elite Indians in India too have been evincing keen interest in the 2020 US Presidential elections and have been guessing about who will be the next US President and the next US Vice President, and who will be the possible candidates of the Republican Party and the Democratic Party.

Now the suspense is over and a clarity has emerged as far as the Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates of the Republican and the Democratic Parties, after the national conventions of both the parties were held in two consecutive weeks during past fortnight.

Dr. Sampat Shivangi, who is a member of National Advisory Council SAMHSA, and Center for national Mental Health Services stationed in Washington DC, who has been a five-time national delegate of the Republican National Conventions successively, says Kamala Harris is neither a true Indian-American as she never spoke in support of India, nor can she claim an African-American or black American succession, as her father i
