“Inspired by Dharma”: UK PM Rishi Sunak explains the concept of Hinduism-WATCH
New Delhi: United Kingdom Prime Minister in an exclusive interview with high-profile TV presenter Piers Morgan on the occasion of his 100th day as Britain’s first Indian-origin PM talked about the Hindu concept of “dharma.”
He said that after he resigned as Boris Johnson’s chancellor last summer and was defeated by Liz Truss in the Tory leadership contest in the autumn, he thought that he was permanently returning back to the backbenches and that his career in politics has come to an end.
“I resigned [as Chancellor] thinking and believing that would be the last senior job I had in politics”.
