Indian-American business consultant Puneet Ahluwalia is running for the Republican nomination for Lt. Governor of Virginia.
A media report quoted Ahluwalia as saying that the state of Virginia needs a new leadership to attract investment, jobs, growth and wealth.
Puneet Ahluwalia is a Delhi Public School (DPS) alumnus and heads a consultancy and IT businesses in the Washington DC area.
Delhi-born 55-year-old Ahluwalia has been actively participating in US politics since 1998-99.
“Virginia is in trouble right now, and we’re running out of time as Democrats offer the same old tired promises,” The American Bazaar quoted Ahluwalia as saying in a report on Saturday.
“Virginia needs new ideas and a business environment that will attract investment, jobs, growth and wealth,” Ahluwalia said in a note to his supporters.
Ahluwalia, who immigrated to the US in 1990, said: “Virginia needs to support its hard-working and courageous police, protect 2nd Amendment rights, and stand up for law and order.”
Ahluwalia currently serves as a consultant to international businesses on client acquisition, marketing, and strategic affairs with The Livingston Group.
