The 32-year-old Singh has earlier worked with New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg and New Jersey Senator Cory Booker — both Democrats — as their spokeswoman. She has also served as the spokesperson of the Democratic National Committee.

"I'm so excited to join the #BidenHarris ticket as Press Secretary for @KamalaHarris! Can't wait to get to work and win in November!," Singh posted on Twitter.

The Los Angeles resident has strong roots of standing in support of immigrants in the US. She hails from the family of Sardar J J Singh, who stood against the discriminatory policies against minority communities in the 1940s.
