Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh felicitates Young Kim

California: Prominent Indian American Hindu, Sikh and Jains, and the Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh, felicitated the win of Congresswoman-elect Young Kim to Congress representing California’s 39th district.

They celebrated the victory of the Republican candidate who managed to wrest control of a tightly contested Orange County seat.

Amit Desai, outreach director of HSS for Pacific South West division, kicked off the felicitation. Vijay Sinha, national vice president of HSS, highlighted the immense volunteering work being done by HSS to mitigate food insecurity during the COVID crisis such as serving 244,000 meals and donating 294,000 pounds to food pantries across the United States.

In her acceptance speech, Kim thanked HSS and the Indian American community for their support. She recalled the long association and friendship the Indian American community has with her and the former representative Ed Royce.

Kim accepted the Indian American community’s request for her to join the Congressional India Caucus. She also expressed her desire to join the Foreign Affairs Committee and work towards building stronger relationship between the US and India and how both the countries can standup to terrorism and China.

Multiple Indian American elected officials of Southern California attended the event and congratulated Kim. Among them were Anaheim Mayor Harry Sidhu, La Palma Mayor Nitesh Patel, Cerritos Mayor Naresh Solanki and former Irvine Mayor Christina Shea.
