New Delhi: Infosys co-founder Narayan Murthy is feeling very proud of the success of his son-in-law Rishi Sunak. He said, “We are proud of them and we wish their success. We are confident he will do his best for the people of the United Kingdom,” Narayana Murthy said in his first comments about Sunak’s win in the race to lead both the United Kingdom and the Conservative Party, report said.
Union Minister Pralhad Joshi said, ‘It is a proud moment. I wish him (Rishi Sunak) success. Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said on Twitter, “Congratulations Rishi Sunak on being elected as the first Prime Minister of Britain of Indian origin. It is indeed a proud moment for Indians across the world on the auspicious occasion of Diwali. Congratulating Sunak, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Twitter, “Great news. Indians are leaving their mark all over the world. My best wishes to Rishi Sunak on becoming the Prime Minister of Britain. I wish him the wisdom and strength to lead the country successfully.
Rishi Sunak on Monday became UK’s first Indian-origin PM after he won the race to lead the Conservative Party. One of the wealthiest politicians in Westminster, the 42-year-old has also become the country’s youngest leader in modern times – and its third in less than two months. The son of a pharmacist mother and doctor father, Rishi Sunak was educated at one of England’s most renowned schools, Winchester, and then Oxford.
Rishi Sunak got married to Narayana Murthy’s daughter Akshata Murty in 2009 and has two daughters Anoushka and Krishna. Sunak ran for the post of PM against Truss in earlier contendership but lost to her by a margin of approximately 20,000 votes. Truss resigned on Thursday amid the country’s collapsing economy, aggravated by her economic programme that forced her government down. She was appointed as Britain’s premier in the first week of September and now holds the tag of shortest PM in UK’s history.
