Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday congratulated Rishi Sunak on becoming the next UK PM and said he was looking forward to closely working with him on global issues and implementing “Roadmap 2030”. Rishi Sunak made history as Britain’s first Indian-origin Prime Minister after being elected unopposed as the new leader of the ruling Conservative Party on Diwali.
“Warmest congratulations Rishi Sunak! 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,” PM Modi tweeted.
