UK Cabinet reshuffle: 3 Indian-origin MPs make it to Britain Parliament

UK Cabinet reshuffle: 3 Indian-origin MPs make it to Britain Parliament

London, Feb 14 (UNI) Two months after his historic win, United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson has carried out a reshuffle of ministers in cabinet positions with three Indian-origin MPs as part of Britain's inner political circle.
Rishi Sunak (39), the son-in-law of Infosys co-founder Ramarao Narayana Murthy, on Thursday replaced Pakistani-origin Chancellor Sajid Javid as the Chancellor of the Exchequer (finance minister) of the United Kingdom, while Alok Sharma was appointed Business Secretary in the British Cabinet with Priti Patel as the new Home Secretary.
Johnson had appointed Patel as the new Home Secretary last July.
Sajid Javid, who made headlines for being the first British Asian to hold one of the Great Offices of State in the UK, is beleived to have lost to a brutal power struggle with prime minister Boris Johnson and his chief adviser Dominic Cummings over who should control the country’s economy.
The Prime Minister had promised in front of media and public not so long ago that that Sajid Javid would be his chancellor. "I'm going to give you an absolutely categorical assurance I will keep Sajid Javid as my chancellor. I think he's a great guy, and I think he is doing a fantastic job."
