India-origin man with his roots in Telangana is making headlines in the US for his meticulously crafted speeches of new US President Joe Biden.
Speech writer Vinay Reddy Cholleti is son of an Indian doctor, who shifted to the US in the 1970s.
Vinay’s father Narayana Reddy belongs to Pothireddypet, a village in Telangana’s Karimnagar district, and after completing his MBBS shifted to the US.
Villagers and his relatives are proud of Vinay’s achievement.
“It is a matter of pride for us when one of us reaches such a top position. America is a global power,” a family member, who does not want to be named told PTI.
People in the village said that politics is probably in Cholleti’s genes as his grandfather Tirupati Reddy was sarpanch of the village.
According to Pullachary, sarpanch of Pothireddypet, Vinay is the second of Narayana Reddy’s three sons.
He was born and brought up in the United States.
“We are happy that Vinay of our village is in a good position in America,” Pullachary said.
The family had contributed funds to a temple in the village recently and is also said to have donated to a school, he said.
