Rishi Sunak Launches Tory Leadership Political Campaign For British Prime Minister Run

Former UK Chancellor Rishi Sunak launched his campaign for the prime minister’s post on Tuesday, vowing to tackle soaring inflation and bringing the tax burden down. The 42-year-old Indian-origin MP, who is the son-in-law of Infosys co-founder Narayana Murthy, also emphasised the need to “return to traditional Conservative economic values”. 

“That means honesty and responsibility, not fairy tales. My values are clear — hard work, patriotism, fairness, a love of family, pragmatism, but also an unshakable belief that we can build a better future,” Sunak said.
