Kamala Harris will take oath as the first woman Vice President of the USA on Wednesday, amidst heightened security concerns after a mob of pro-Trump extremists violently breached the Capitol two weeks ago. The historic inauguration will be held under the unprecedented security umbrella of more than 25,000 National Guards. They have transformed the capital into a garrison city, mainly because of the threat of more violent protests by the supporters of outgoing President Donald Trump, who is skipping the event.
Ahead of the event, Gopalan Balachandran, the maternal uncle of Harris gave a message for her. Speaking to news agency ANI, he said that “all that I’ll tell her is ‘do whatever Shyamala (Kamala’ mother) taught you. You have been doing fine so far, keep it up”. He said, “There’s no message I can give, I didn’t help her become Vice President. She did all on her own. All that I’ll tell her is ‘do whatever Shyamala (Kamala Harris’s mother) taught you. You’ve been doing fine so far, keep it up. It’s all I can say.”
