Let us inform that the post of US Ambassador to India is vacant for almost two years. There has been a lot of criticism of America regarding this.
Alleged sexual harassment
Eric Garcetti was nominated by Biden as India’s ambassador last year as well, but his name got stuck. In fact, Garcetti’s name was redacted during an internal investigation. Please tell that Eric Garcetti was accused of sexual harassment of a woman during the mayor’s office. This is the reason why his name was put on hold after he was nominated as India’s ambassador last year. However, he always called the sexual harassment case against him baseless. During this the White House also publicly defended him.
