Several netizens who have migrated to the US responded to the US senate candidate and Vikas Khanna’s tweet. They mentioned their achievements in their tweets. Vikas Khanna’s Twitter reply was widely appreciated and people supported him. A Twitter user mentioned his wife is doing a great job in the US. He also mentioned that many immigrants are actually doing well. Take a look at some of the tweets:
My wife is from Nigeria: she’s doing a very good job at assimilating into American society. In fact, immigrants from many so-called third-world societies are very successful in the U.S. You are simply ignorant on this topic.

An Indian user seemed confused and wrote that she’s not sure if India is still considered a third world country. Another Indian user used a pun by saying that the ‘only Vikas (development) that is taking place in India are the efforts that Vikas Khanna has taken’. She spoke about Vikas Khanna’s lockdown charity where his initiative Feeding India fed more than 50 million Indians in the country during the COVID-19 crisis. Take a look at the tweets.
Are we still considered as third world country🤔🤔
