After falling behind in the prime ministerial race, the discussion of ousting Rishi Sunak of Indian origin from the cabinet is at its peak. It is being told that the truss will fill the cabinet with loyalists. Hence, there is no room for his defeated opponent in the 8-week race for the post of Prime Minister. There is also talk that Kwasi Quarteng could become the Finance Minister in place of Sunak. Meanwhile, Sunak has declared his ‘full support’ to the truss. Apart from this, there are indications that Home Minister Priti Patel is also set to go, who may be replaced by Suella Braverman, another person of Indian origin.

Meanwhile, a subsidy proposed by Britain’s new Prime Minister Truss has been welcomed by Britons amid extraordinary energy prices. Therefore, this decision of the government will increase the burden on the government’s finances.
