Rahul Gandhi writes to Rishi Sunak, new UK PM Keir Starmer – N.F Times


New Delhi: Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha Rahul Gandhi has written to United Kingdom Prime Minister Keir Starmer congratulating him on his landslide electoral victory. In another letter, the Congress MP on Saturday extended commiserations to the UK’s Conservative Party leader Rishi Sunak on the party’s electoral defeat, saying victories and setbacks are inevitable part of democracy and “we must take both in our stride”.

In his letter to Keir Starmer, Rahul Gandhi said the Labour Party’s emphasis on economic growth with equality, better opportunities for all through stronger social services, and community empowerment struck a chord with the people of the UK.

“I extend my heartiest congratulations on your remarkable electoral victory, a significant achievement for the Labour Party and for you personally. Your campaign’s emphasis on economic growth with equality, better opportunities for all through stronger social services, and community empowerment clearly struck a chord with the people of the UK, reflecting their aspirations for a brighter future,” the Congress leader said in his letter.

Rahul Gandhi added that he too believed in the same ideals stated in their campaign.

“As someone committed to these ideals, I congratulate you and the people of the UK for championing them. Your victory is a testament to the power of a politics that puts people first. I also look forward to the continued strengthening of the bilateral relationship between India and the UK,” the letter further reads.

“I wish you all the best for your tenure, and I look forward to meeting you in the near future,” he said.
