London: Indian-origin Suella Braverman has resigned as Britain’s Home secretary. Braverman, the son of a Goa-born father and a Tamil-origin mother, was appointed Home Minister 43 days before British Prime Minister Liz Truss took office at 10 Downing Street. Earlier, Braverman had a meeting with Prime Minister Truss on Wednesday and it is not being seen as a result of disagreement over government policy. Krasinski Quarteng was fired last Friday and his successor, Finance Minister Jeremy Hunt, cut the government’s mini-budget on Monday.

This move is expected to aggravate the crisis for the leadership of the Truss. Braverman, appointed less than two months ago, is a right-wing and popular leader of the ruling Conservative Party. At the same time, PM Liz Truss called herself a fighter on Wednesday. Let us tell you that there is a lot of opposition within Liz Truss’s own party. It has been reported in several surveys that more than 50 percent of Conservative Party leaders want Liz Truss to resign as PM. Meanwhile, Rishi Sunak, who was the prime ministerial candidate, is once again emerging as a popular leader within the party.
