Prime Minister Narendra Modi has congratulated Indian-origin Rishi Sunak, who is set to take over as UK’s next premier. The Prime Minister in a tweet said that he looks forward to working closely with Sunak on global issues and implementing ‘Roadmap 2030’. He extended ‘special Diwali’ wishes to the ‘living bridge’ of UK Indians.
“Warmest congratulations @RishiSunak! As you become UK PM, I look forward to working closely together on global issues and implementing Roadmap 2030. Special Diwali wishes to the ‘living bridge’ of UK Indians, as we transform our historic ties into a modern partnership,” he wrote on Twitter.
Sunak has created history by becoming the first Indian-origin British leader to reach 10 Downing Street – the official residence of the UK Prime Minister. He was elected as Conservative Party leader by Tory MPs, who said the country needed stability and Sunak was their choice. Sunak has served as chancellor of the exchequer under former Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
US President Joe Biden said the news of Rishi Sunak becoming the UK PM is “pretty astounding, a ground-breaking milestone and it matters”.
