IMF Deputy MD Gita Gopinath, Canadian MP Chandra Arya, Diaspora Indians cheer as Sunak becomes UK Prime Minister

Indian Americans celebrated the swearing in of Indian descent Rishi Sunak as UK Prime Minister on Tuesday, saying it was a big day for the overseas Indian community.

This was a great Diwali gift for the diaspora. Rishi was already on the list of heads of government of Indiaspora and we welcome him and wish him well on his arrival! Silicon Valley-based entrepreneur and founder of Indiaspora, MR Rangaswami, said.

It’s a special Diwali this year as the UK has its first Prime Minister of Indian descent. Congratulations, Gita Gopinath, First Deputy Director of the International Monetary Fund.

dr. Sampat Shivangi, chairman of the Mississippi State Board of Mental Health, praised Sunak for his script history. What a proud moment for an Indian to see Rishi occupy the highest seat of power 75 years ago: British were the rulers of colonial India, he said.

dr. Shivangi said he has known Rishi and his family personally for several years as their relatives are from Athani in Karnataka. Sudha Murthy’s father (Sunak’s mother-in-law) was my professor at my medical school, he recalled.

I look forward to a successful transformation of the UK economy in the coming days. I wish Sunak to bring glory and tremendous credibility to his nation, the Indian diaspora and to his ancestral land, he said.

Al Mason, a New York real estate businessman, praised Sunak for being the first British Prime Minister of South Asian descent, the first Hindu and the youngest to hold the position.

Canadian MP Chandra Arya in a statement congratulated Sunak on becoming the UK’s first Hindu Prime Minister. May his achievement motivate a new generation of Canadians to become more actively involved in public service, he said.
