She is one of the five people invited from AP and Telangana to receive exposure to the US Federal system of Government. During the three week trip, the members will be exposed to structures and functions of the US government with emphasis on division of authority and responsibility between federal, State and local governments and courts and demonstrate successful models of cooperation among State governments and courts.

Usha Rani has held several important positions in the Indian Youth Congress as general secretary, in-charge of West Bengal and Haryana, party in-charge of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Lakshadweep, Andaman and Pondicherry. She is presently the general secretary of INTUC women's wing and is a permanent member and general council member of INTUCD. She is also a national level badminton player and vice-president of Andhra Pradesh Athletic Association.

Usharani, along with Nageswara Reddy, MLA from Yemmiganur in Kurnool District, will leave for the US on April 4. The two delegates from Andhra Pradesh would visit Washington DC, Illinois. During the trip, they will explore the role and structure of ethics in government and business in the US and illustrate the principles underlying transparency and accountability.

Participants will have an opportunity to observe and learn about the involvement of university students in the political process through a visit to the private university. A joint meeting will be requested with members of American University’s College Democrats and College Republicans to learn about campaigning and other activities of the student organisations. Student leaders will also summarise the philosophies and key principles of the two main political parties in the United States. The visit will conclude with a brief campus tour.
