Andhra Man Dies In US, Pregnant Wife Forced To Return To India

RAJAHMUNDRY: US techie and Rajahmundry man, whose name was listed in the Green Card backlog, and died all of a sudden, has forced his pregnant wife to return to India from the US.

Shiva Chalapathi Raju, stayed in North Carolina and worked as a developer at Oracle. Previously, he worked at Wipro and British Petroleum in Michigan and Illinois. He had graduated from JNTU-Hyderabad.

He died suddenly on Tuesday, October 29. As his name was in line for Green Card, but with his sudden demise his pregnant wife, Bobby Sowjanya, has been rendered out of status, and she has to travel back to India.

The Indian Green Card backlog community took to Twitter on Thursday and described the plight of another Green Card backlog family on the micro-blogging platform by using the hashtag #DurbinWidow and #DurbinOrphan.

Many Indians expressed their outrage at Illinois Senator Dick Durbin's opposition to S.386. or Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act 2019. They blamed him directly for the uncertain fate of a number of such families, who were having to reconsider their lives due to their long wait to obtain a Green Card in the US.

Meanwhile, the Piedmont Area Telugu Association (PATA) has started a GoFundMe page to help Raju's family, a media report said.
