It’s time for all Americans to come together and move forward with a peaceful transition of power. The attacks against America's Capitol Building and democracy must end. I pray this situation can be resolved without further bloodshed. #WashingtonDC pic.twitter.com/MTKjvVur8G— Nila Madhab PANDA ନୀଳମାଧବ ପଣ୍ଡା (@nilamadhabpanda) January 7, 2021
