Indian American Vanita Gupta to be next US Associate Attorney General

Washington, DC: US President-elect Joe Biden has nominated Indian-origin Vanita Gupta to serve as Associate Attorney General of the United States making her the first woman of color to serve in this role. 
Gupta becomes the latest addition to Biden’s team that features Indian Americans such as former US surgeon general Vivek Murthy. 
“A former Acting Assistant Attorney General and one of the best-known and most respected civil rights attorneys in America, Gupta has spent her career fighting successfully for greater equity in our justice system and advancing the rights and dignity of every American,” read the Biden-Harris transition Website. 
It added that Gupta has served as Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division — the chief civil rights prosecutor for the United States. 
“She is a successful consensus builder on tough issues, with years of experience managing complex settlements and advocacy experience. As the Indian-American daughter of immigrants, she would be the first woman of color to serve in this role,” the website read further. (ANI)
