Washington: Another Indian has got a place in the team of the newly elected President of America, Joe Biden. Joe has named Indian-American Neera Tandon as the Director of Office of Management and Budget at the top position at the White House.
This appointment is yet to be confirmed by the Senate. If the Senate approves this appointment, then 50-year-old Neera Tandon would be the first Indian-American woman to hold such a high position in the White House. She will be the first woman who will not be white and will occupy this post. On this post, Neera will have the responsibility of handling the budget of Biden administration. After the Corona epidemic, there are major challenges in the health care sector of America. In front of Neera, the challenge will be to adjust the budget, jobs, international grants.
