Shashi Tharoor is criticised for speculating on Rishi Sunak if India would ever have a prime minister from a minority group.

Sunak, 42, wrote history on Tuesday when he became the country of Britain’s first Prime Minister of Indian descent. After Liz Truss resigned from her position as prime minister after an infamously brief tenure, Sunak was seen as the front-runner.

Shashi Tharoor, the leader of the Congress, has faced harsh criticism after he recently tweeted that it is “very rare” for the United Kingdom to accept Rishi Sunak from the minority community to hold the position of its “most powerful office,” and he questioned whether the same could ever occur in India.

Tharoor tweeted, “If this does happen, I think all of us will have to acknowledge that the Brits have done something very rare in the world, to place a member of a visible minority in the most powerful office, after it became clear that Sunak has enough support from the Conservatives to become the nation’s next Prime Minister. While we Indians rejoice
