In his tweet on Kamala Harris being designated to serve as the next Vice President, Modi also made a reference to chittis - or aunts as they are known in Tamil. The term had trended across the US when Kamala had paid tribute to her chitti on being chosen as the running mate of Biden in the US elections.

"Heartiest congratulations @KamalaHarris! Your success is pathbreaking, and a matter of immense pride not just for your chittis, but also for all Indian-Americans. I am confident that the vibrant India-US ties will get even stronger with your support and leadership (sic)," Modi tweeted.

In the event that was held in Texas, Modi had welcomed Trump in the audience of Indian-Americans with "Abki baar, Trump Sarkar" slogan.
