Two Indian Americans have been appointed to key positions within the Republican Party with the explicit goal of getting diversified community leaders more involved in GOP causes. Niraj Antani, a Ohio State legislature member, and Janak Joshi, a Colorado State legislature member, have been appointed to the board of the 2015-2016 Future Majority Project of the Republican Party. The Future Majority Project seeks to recruit, train and elect Republican candidates from diverse communities on the state level who better represent the full diversity of America. In 2013-2014, FMP recruited hundreds of new candidates and elected 43 new leaders to office. With its newest push, FMP aims to recruit 250 new, diverse candidates and see 50 of those candidates appointed or elected to office. About Janak Joshi: Joshi was born in Ahmedabad, India, and has served as a member of the Colorado House of Representatives since 2011, representing two different districts during his tenure, according to his official website. The 31-year resident of Colorado — where he practiced internal medicine, nephrology, and occupational medicine — earned his M.D. from Gujarat University in India and an M.S. in business /health care administration from the University of Northern Colorado. About Niraj Antani: Antani became the youngest current member of the House of Representatives and one of the youngest in history when he was elected last year at the tender age of 23. Along with serving in the U.S. Congress, Antani is a student at the University of Dayton School of Law, having previously graduated from Ohio State University with a Bachelor’s in political science.
