Washington, May 15: Indian-American Nira Tandon has been appointed senior adviser to US President Joe Biden. Tandon withdrew his nomination to the post of director of the White House Management and Budget Office two months ago due to strong opposition from Republican senators. Tendon, 50, will take charge of the White House from Monday. Tandon is currently president and chief executive officer of the Center for American Progress (CAP). “Neera’s intelligence, theory and political understanding will prove to be the capital of the Beadon administration,” said Padesta, Capesta’s founder and director.
Tandon was previously a senior adviser on health reform at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. He worked closely with Congress and partners on a number of special provisions of the Affordable Care Act during the presidency of former United States President Barack Obama. Previously, he was the domestic policy director of the Obama-Biden presidential campaign, where he handled all domestic policy proposals.
