Chairman Pete Sessions

Sessions, who chairs the House Rules Committee, emphasized the need for the United States to better foster cultural and economic ties with India and particularly for Republicans to work with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“I have found that with the election of Prime Minister Modi, his jelling of ideas as to the future of this great nation and the relationship they would share with America would be economic, would be strategic and would be cultural, with the understanding that our two nations have much in common,” and further said. “We have to engage, create 10 million new jobs with India and America together. If we have to succeed, then we have to partner with Prime Minister Modi.”
