Indian-origin British Parliamentarian Rishi Sunak was on Monday inducted into UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s Cabinet.

Sunak is married to, Infosys’s co-founder, Narayana Murthy’s daughter Akshata Murthy and they have two children. Former businessman Sunak, 37, was first elected from the safe Tory seat of Richmond Yorkshire in 2015 and re-elected in 2017 with a higher margin. He was appointed parliamentary undersecretary of state in the ministry of housing, communities and local government. Mr. Sunak is a strong supporter of Brexit. Writing for the Conservative Home website earlier this year, he criticised the EU’s “dismal record” of opening up new trade markets for member States, arguing that outside the customs union, Britain could “regain control” over its trade policy. The son of a retired GP and a small business owner, Mr. Sunak co-founded an investment firm before moving into politics.

Apart from Rishi Sunak, Indian-origin Conservative Party MP for Fareham Suella Fernandes was also appointed to May’s Cabinet as a minister in the Department for Exiting the European Union. The lawmaker of Goan origin has lately emerged as a major figure in the Conservative Party, steering a group of MPs as chair of the pro-Brexit European Research Group.

In the process of reshuffling some of her top ministers and secretaries, Prime Minister May appointed numerous Parliamentarians belonging to ethnic minorities in the UK. According to May, the move was aimed at making the British government “look more like the country it served”.
