PM Modi congratulates US President-elect Joe Biden on victory
New Delhi : As Joe Biden won the US elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi joined the league of world leaders to congratulate him and said that he looks forward to strengthening India’s ties with the world’s strongest economy.
"Congratulations Joe Biden on your spectacular victory! As the VP, your contribution to strengthening Indo-US relations was critical and invaluable. I look forward to working closely together once again to take India-US relations to greater heights," PM Modi tweeted on Sunday.
Biden had a 273 to 214 lead in the state-by-state Electoral College vote that determines the winner, having won Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes to put him over the 270 he needed to secure the presidency, according to Edison Research.
