Washington, Aug.27 (ANI): The U.S.-India Political Action Committee (USINPAC) expressed deep grief at the death of Senator Edward Kennedy.
Dr. Bharat Tewarie, USINPAC leadership committee member from Massachusetts said, "Senator Kennedy was the senior statesman of American politics with a public service record of nearly half a century. He showed by example how people with opposing views could work together on most complex issues. How else could he have authored over 2000 bills? He will be greatly missed".
USINPAC Chairman Sanjay Puri said, "Sen. Kennedy's life was a life of service to the people of his country. With the death of this truly great American a chapter has come to an end. But he leaves behind a legacy which will be hard to match. Even if you disagreed with him on an issue, you could never question his commitment to this country and for providing an opportunity for the American dream to every American. Despite his failing health he worked to convert his dream of affordable health care into reality. We salute him for his achievements and mourn with the nation."
The U.S.-India Political Action Committee (USINPAC) is the political voice of 2.7 million Indian-Americans. It provides bipartisan support to candidates for federal, state and local office who support the issues that are important to the Indian-American community. (ANI)
