Rishi Sunak, a statesman of Indian descent, was the first Hindu to be named UK Prime Minister. The leader of the Conservative Party once again proudly exhibited his racial heritage by wearing the sacred Hindu “Kalawa” thread during his first speech as the UK prime minister.
42-year-old Rishi Sunak was spotted at 10 Downing Street waving to his fans while donning the holy red thread.
After election duties
Within an hour of his meeting with King Charles II, the new UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak began fulfilling his vow that “work will begin immediately.” Prior to the introduction of his new cabinet, a number of Liz Truss’s team of ministers were requested to resign. By evening, Jeremy Hunt was appointed finance minister, and Dominic Raab was named deputy prime minister.
Four ministers have already been requested to resign thus far. According to insiders, these include Development Minister Vicky Ford, Work, and Pensions Secretary Chloe Smith, Justice Secretary Brandon Lewis, and Business Secretary Jacob Rees-Mogg.
Sunak is the third Prime Minister this year
The election of the 42-year-old Indian-origin Tory leader as the third British prime minister this year seems to have made many Indians happy. His parents immigrated to the UK from East Africa. Even the doubters can’t help but feel a little satisfied.
Naturally, the nationalists are the happiest and seem eager to claim Mr. Sunak through his faith.
India’s largest English daily, Times of India, reports that Rishi Sunak, a “proud Hindu,” is the next UK PM; the narrative uses the word Hindu five times. According to India Today, Mr. Sunak “won the top job in the UK despite being Hindu, not because of it,” adding that he is “Hindu in 10 Downing Street.”
Due to rising borrowing rates and an expensive six-month scheme to help people with their energy bills, Mr. Sunak, one of the wealthiest members of parliament, will now need to make significant spending cuts to close a shortfall in the public finances estimated to be worth $40 billion (£30 billion).
If Mr. Sunak deviates too much from the policy platform that helped the Conservative Party win the 2019 election—when Boris Johnson promised to make significant investments in the nation—his party’s popularity has been bruised, and there are mounting calls for an election.
To support hard-working families, my administration took “urgent and decisive action,” according to Britain’s departing Prime Minister Liz Truss.
Rishi Sunak receives greeting from in-laws
In response to his son-in-law, Rishi Sunak’s election as Prime Minister of Britain, billionaire businessman and co-founder of Infosys Narayana Murthy wished him well on the new endeavor. Sunak’s victory in the contest to lead the United Kingdom and the Conservative Party was mentioned by Narayana Murthy in his opening remarks, according to news source PTI.
Sunak’s duty accepting speech
Earlier, Sunak competed against Truss for the position of prime minister, but she fell short of her by about 20,000 votes. In the midst of the nation’s crumbling economy, which was made worse by Truss’ economic plan that brought down her administration, she resigned on Thursday.
He described his election as a measure to address the “mistakes” of his predecessors, saying “Trust is earned and I will earn yours.”
Mr. Sunak added that his administration will fulfill its commitment to a stronger NHS (National Healthcare system), better schools, safer streets, support for the armed services, leveling up, and job creation. He stated that it will have “ethics, professionalism, and accountability at every level.”
The UK is currently experiencing a severe economic downturn that is heading straight into a recession. The Conservative party has been under fire for allegedly doing nothing to resolve the issue.
