New Delhi:

Former British Chancellor of the Exchequer, of Indian descent Rishi Sunak, the frontrunner in the race to become the UK’s next prime minister and leader of the Conservative Party, was joined by his wife Akshata Murthy at a meeting yesterday. Akshata Murthy, who first appeared during her husband’s campaign, was accompanied by the couple’s daughters, Krishna and Anoushka.

“Family means everything to me. I am so grateful to have the support of my family at yesterday’s event in Grantham,” said Rishi Sunak, posting photos of the high voltage event in Grantham, the hometown of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

“Don’t doubt, I’m the underdog,” Sunak said during his speech.

Akshata Murthy, daughter of NR Narayana Murthy, founder of Indian IT company Infosys, has been targeted for months for using her UK non-resident status to evade tax while her husband was UK Chancellor.

Richer than the Queen of England?

Akshata Murthy’s personal wealth – coming from Infosys’ dividends – has been used to attack Rishi Sunak even before he started his campaign for the post of British Prime Minister. Several media reports said Ms Murthy was wealthier than Queen Elizabeth II, a charge that has helped opponents of Rishi Sunak build his image as someone detached from the problems of ordinary Britons.

“My values ​​are Thatcherite. I believe in hard work, family and integrity. I am a Thatcherite, I work like a Thatcherite and I will rule like a Thatcherite. I will implement the radical series of Thatcherite reforms that will unleash growth and strengthen our society and culture,” Sunak claimed in an article at the start of his campaign.

Is Rishi Sunak close to the clinch spot?

So far, Rishi Sunak, whose resignation sparked an uprising in his party against incumbent Boris Johnson who forced the latter to resign amid scandals, has led all rounds of voting among conservative party lawmakers, reducing the overwhelming field to two candidates: Rishi Sunak and Liz Truus.

Members of the ruling Conservative Party will vote for a successor and the announcement of the party’s new leader – the UK’s next prime minister – will be made on September 5.
