Neera Tandon, an Indian-American who is likely to be named Biden’s Director of Management and Budget, will be responsible for managing the administration’s budget. Many American media are in favor of Neera taking the top job. The 50-year-old, who currently heads the left-leaning Center for American Progress, will become the first woman of color to lead the Office of Management and Budget.

Tandon’s nomination is part of Biden’s plan to build a team of liberal and centrist economic advisers to work with planned Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, the Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday. ۔ According to several reports, the nominations of Tandon, Yellen and others are expected to be announced soon.

According to the Washington Post, Tandon will be under pressure from conservatives to rein in government spending, but is likely to play a key role in shaping the Biden administration’s response to the current economic downturn.

It said she was a close ally of Hillary Clinton, the former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, and helped pass the Affordable Care Act under Obama.

“Another proud day for Indian Americans is to see Neera Tandon appointed to the next Cabinet-level post in the next administration.

If anyone doubts that our community has achieved political activism, this election cycle is proof enough,” said MR Rangaswamy, founder of non-profit organization IndiaSpora, via IANS.

Princeton University labor economist Cecilia Russ could become the first person of color on Biden’s team. She is likely to be appointed head of the Council of Economic Advisers.

The African-American woman will play a key role in advising the president on the economy, who has been ill since the country’s coronavirus outbreak left millions out of work.
