London (UK) – British Prime Minister has resigned after 41 ministers of his Government have resigned. The rift in the Government increased after Chris Pincher was appointed a minister.

Soon after that, the ministers started resignations one after the other. It began with the finance minister Rishi Sunak and the health minister Sajid Javed. If elections are not declared, Rishi Sunak would likely become the prime minister. In that case, he would be the first British prime minister of Indian origin.

Editorial viewpoint

Since most elected members in India are already involved in criminal cases directly or indirectly they do not raise concerns against other corrupt elected members.
