Barack Obama-like moment for Britain

The newspaper quoted Chandrarana as saying, “It is a proud time, there is a crowd of devotees in the temple, people are showing their picture taken with him, when he last visited the temple, he posed with each person. At that time there were about 300 people.

“For Britain it’s like Barack Obama’s time. Just as Obama was the first black president in America. Similarly, here for the first time a non-white person is becoming the Prime Minister, also he is of Indian origin and is a Hindu which gives us another reason to be proud.

He said, “When I got to know that he was going to be the prime minister, we offered special prayers and mentioned him in our Diwali speech.” Obama was the first African American who became the US President in 2009.

Everyone is united in Britain

Chandrarana believes that Sunak becoming the Prime Minister means that work is being done to bring the whole country together. He said, “I work in an investment bank. I am the Managing Director at Canary Wharf, all generations agree that there are some problems but in the UK everyone is united, I can say that.

Chandrarana said, “It will unite the country as they fully follow Hinduism and its important value is that the whole world is one family and we believe in unity.” The challenge is the economic crisis and political instability that they have to deal with.

According to the news of Metro News, the owner of the Indian restaurant where Sunak used to clean the tables as a teenager, believes that Sunak will run the country with vigor. Kuti Miyan, who knew Sunak since the age of two months, said, “I want to wish him all the best, he is a great man and I hope he leads the country in a better way.”

He said, “It is a difficult time, he has got a difficult job but he is ready for it. He will do this work with full dedication. He is a hard working person.” He said, “I know him, he will do a great job, he is an honest person towards people. He is a man loving person. He is not working for money. He already has a lot of money.”
