Fortunately or unfortunately diplomacy doesn't work that way and is a game of politics and handling delicate issues with tact and finesse. Garcetti will make noises not just because of his master's ideology but also because he has ambitions of becoming the President someday, so he will take the opportunity to crack the whip harder. That said, i am surprised the Biden administration took nearly two and a half years to name a ambassador, i was expecting someone like Garcetti in early 2021, so who knows maybe GoI did convey its displeasure to the US administration in private.Since BJP controls the GoI, all GoI has to do is not recognize Eric Garcetti and declare him persona non grata and that'll be the end of it. It will send a strong message to the US that it will brook no foreign interference with the domestic and political affairs of India.
