Indian-American Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal appointed chair of the CPC

In a recent development, Indian-American Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal has been appointed for the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC). This makes her one of the most powerful US lawmakers for the 117th Congress.

Ms Jayapal, 55, after her election to this most powerful Congressional Caucus, said, “As a lifelong organiser, I am honoured that my colleagues have elected me to lead the Congressional Progressive Caucus at this pivotal moment.”

The move is going to play an influential role during the next US Administration to be led by Joe Biden who is due to take over as the 46th president of the US on January 20.
