Former UK PM David Cameron had told PM Modi seven years ago that there will be a British-Indian PM in Britain

“It won’t take long for a British-Indian prime minister to arrive at 10, Downing Street,” former British Prime Minister David Cameron said at an expatriate event for PM Narendra Modi at Wembley Stadium in 2015. Now it has become true.

Sunak had received more than 180 MP nominations by mid-morning – more than half the parliamentary party – gaining a commanding lead over Mordent, who had the public support of only less than 30 MPs, though he claimed to have more.

Former Prime Minister Boris Johnson put an end to days of speculation about a return when he dropped out of the race, saying that although he had received 102 nominations and felt he would now have to postpone a general election and run in 2024 Will have to look for one. Conservatives are especially put to win. This is not the right thing” and “not the right time” because he acknowledged that you cannot govern effectively unless you have a united party in Parliament.

After Johnson stepped down, Sunak tweeted: “Although he has decided not to run for PM again, I really hope he continues to contribute to public life at home and abroad.”

Not everyone welcomed Sunak’s victory. Labour’s deputy leader, Angela Rainer MP, said: “The Tories have crowned Rishi Sunak as prime minister, not saying a word about how he will run the country and without giving anyone a chance to vote. It’s the same Rishi Sunak whose family avoided paying taxes in this country before he taxes everyone else. With his record—and Liz Truss’s massively beat him over the summer—it’s no surprise That he is investigating. Rishi Sunak has no mandate nor does he know what working people need. We need normal elections.”

But MP Liam Fox told BBC News that Sunak could offer a “quiet, confident and capable government”. “We will be financially prudent so that international markets can be confident that the UK economy will run responsibly.

He said electoral uncertainty is the last thing we need and “the last thing international markets would like to see”. He challenged the idea that Sunak did not have a mandate to be PM and elections should be held instead, saying that the mandate in Britain was given to the party chosen on his manifesto and not the leader and that it was the party’s duty. that he would fulfill it.
