New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on the occasion of Diwali, congratulated Rishi Sunak via Twitter. In his cordial message, PM Modi underlined his wish to work closely with Sunak on several global issues and to carry out Roadmap 2030.
The public mood within the Indian diaspora is enthusiastic over Sunak. It is important to keep expectations for the new UK PM in check because some structural hurdles prevent cordial relations between the two nations from developing.
The biggest worry is that leaders of the past in third nations tend to overcompensate for their so-called minority disadvantage. They were more loyal towards the monarch when it came to dealing with their home country, as demonstrated by prior instances.
However, PM Sunak is less concerned with the India-UK FTA than he is with restoring the British economy and controlling spiraling inflation.
The UK needs to take action against radical Khalistani elements who are openly raising money in gurudwaras in Britain and radicalizing young Sikhs against India.
Offenders like Vijay Mallya, Nirav Modi, and others have taken shelter in the UK. There were strong cases against such culprits. Warrants have been issued against them. However, they have long sought refuge under the British system.
The umbilical connection between the British and Pakistani deep states is the third problem that hinders the strengthening of India-UK relations.
The final obstacle that the new UK PM faces is the rejection of Britain, especially its media, in accepting India as a global power. India has left behind Britain and has become the fifth largest economy in GDP terms on the world map.
