Britain’s prime ministerial candidate Rishi Sunak said he wants to change the relationship between Britain and India to make them more two-way, so that UK students and companies can access India.
At an event, Sunak greeted people by saying “Namaste, Salaam, Kem Chho and Kidda”. Most of the British Indians participated in this program. Addressing the people in Hindi language, he said, “You are all my family.”
Responding to CFIN co-chair Reena Ranger’s question on the bilateral relationship, he said, “We know that the relationship between Britain and India is very important. We are like a bridge between two countries.
“We all know the opportunities for the UK to sell and work in India, but really we need to look at this relationship differently because there are so many things that we do here,” he said. Britain can learn from India.
Sunak said, “I want to make sure that it is easy for our students to go to India and study there, it is easy for our companies and Indian companies to work together because it is not just a one-way relationship, it is a two-way relationship and I I want to bring a similar change in this regard.
Speaking on China, Sunak once again emphasized the need for Britain to take a “tough stand” against its aggression.
