HOUSTON, TEXAS-Hirsh Singh, Republican candidate for US Senate from New Jersey, attended the “Howdy Modi” rally of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday, September 22 at the NRG Stadium in Houston where Modi was joined by President Donald Trump. More than 50,000 people attended at the rally.
Singh was a special invitee to the program and met a number of dignitaries. He later attended a luncheon with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi after the event. During the event Singh expressed support for the positions of both Modi and Trump. He spoke to his supporters as well as members of the media at the event. He was interviewed by Hasan Minhaj from the Netflix show Patriot Acton on the sidelines of the event.
Expressing his support for President Trump’s positions, Singh said that he opposed socialism and China’s expansionism and vowed to work with President Trump in opposing both these threats. He also opposed the support for terrorism by Pakistan and supported India’s stance on bringing liberty and women’s rights to the people of Jammu and Kashmir by getting rid of Article 370 of the Indian Constitution.
His strongest criticism was reserved for the Democratic Party. “The Democrats, and particularly Cory Booker, need to be defeated in order to prevent America from being the sugar daddy of socialists, rogue nations and totalitarian regimes,” said Singh.
