Rishi Sunak’s 2010 election as UK Prime Minister is a landmark is a milestone, according to Joe Biden

The selection of Indian-born Rishi Sunak to be the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom is quite remarkable and is a milestone that will astonish everyone, United States President Joe Biden has stated.

Washington: The selection of an Indian-born Rishi Sunak to be the country’s Prime Minister is quite awe-inspiring and is a milestone that will astonish everyone, United States President Joe Biden has stated.

In his remarks to the White House Diwali celebration on Monday, President Obama said the festival of lights was an opportunity to remind us that all of us were able to lighten the darkness and shine into the world.

“It’s an option. We have to make that decision every day. This is the case in our lives and in the life of our nation and especially in the life of a democracy, either it’s here at home in America or for families in India which are celebrating the 75th anniversary of independence.” the president said.

“And whether it’s the United Kingdom, where just today we’ve got the news that Rishi Sunak is now the Prime Minister,” Biden declared amid a rousing cheer from the privileged guests that included over 200 guests comprised of the top names of Indian Americans and members of his administration.

“As my brother used to say,”Go figure!” And the Conservative Party! (Sunak) is likely to be the premier minister, I believe on the day he travels to see the King. This is quite amazing. A milestone of a new kind. It’s significant. It is important,” Biden said acknowledging the immigrant Indian community’s accomplishments.

Biden made history in 2020 by choosing Indian-born Kamala Harris to be his campaign ally. Harris is currently the US vice president and the second most powerful person in the US after Biden. Harris is the first Indian-born candidate for the position.

In announcing that his administration was home to the highest number of Asian Americans than ever, Biden declared that he wanted to acknowledge the community for their contribution.

“It’s simple to say. Thank you thank your, thank” the president declared.

In gratitude to Indian Americans for making Diwali an integral part of American tradition, he stated, “As we see it across the country, opening homes and hearts and exchanging gifts and sweets and hosting feasts for family and friends, organizing cultural programs that bring us together you contribute in every part of American life.”

“Thank you for reflecting the soul of who we are as a nation,” the president said.

In a previous statement, Biden wished a happy Diwali to the over million Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, and Buddhists who celebrate the festival of lights across America, the US, India, and around the globe.

“As we host the official White House Diwali reception, we are honoured to light the Diya surrounded by members of the most diverse administration in American history by Vice President Kamala Harris, the first Black American and South Asian American to become vice president,” he added.

Saluting members of the South Asian community in the US for their determination, optimism, and compassion, he stated they are the heart of what we’re as a country, whether helping us to recover from the ravages of this epidemic, creating an economy that is beneficial to all or helping and protecting the communities we share with our country.

He also warned that there was always danger lurking.

“American historical record has always been an ongoing battle between the ideals of its founding fathers that we all are made equal, and the stark reality that we’ve not fulfilled it to the fullest extent. By announcing the triumph in the battle against darkness Diwali reminds us that we all have the ability to bring light to the world, be it at home in America or anywhere else in the globe, he added.

“With prayers, dances, fireworks, and sweets may all who observe Diwali enjoy the chance to celebrate and connect, to feel the pride of the community, and to remember the power in the gathering of light,” Biden added.
