Right now, the young Prime Minister of Britain, who is being discussed in the country and abroad, has come into the discussion after the issue that he is from India came out. With the 42-year-old Rishi Sunak of Indian origin becoming the 57th Prime Minister of the UK, the Nepali community in the UK is excited and hopeful.
With the appointment of British King Charles III as the Prime Minister of the country on Tuesday morning, Sunak succeeded in becoming the first black and Hindu Prime Minister in British history and the youngest Prime Minister in two centuries. Sunak was born in 1980 in Southampton, England, to Indian-origin parents who came to Britain from East Africa.
Sunak is the father of two daughters who is married to Akshata Murthy, the daughter of rich Indian industrialist Narayan Murthy. For the first time in history, he has become the prime minister who has double the wealth of the king. Sunak and his wife Akshata Murthy have a joint wealth of 73 million pounds, while King Charles and his wife Camilla have a joint wealth of 350 million pounds, according to the British media.
After Sunak became the Prime Minister after being elected as the leader of the ruling Conservative Party, the Nepalis, especially those involved in local politics, have become very excited and optimistic. In the meeting, Sharma said that he came from a middle-class family and that he was able to reach this position because of the education given by his family. Rushmore Borough Council Councilor Jeev Belwase is also very happy and optimistic about Sunak becoming the Prime Minister of Indian origin.
It is expected that he will be fully capable of his main objective of freeing the UK from economic depression. Earlier, Liz Truss, who became the Prime Minister on September 5, behind Sunak in the race for the Prime Minister, was forced to give up the post of Prime Minister in the shortest time of 45 days after the government of Liz Truss was criticized due to various economic policies.
