Rishi Sunak visits temple with wife to celebrate Janmashtami

NEW DELHI: British prime ministerial candidate Rishi Sunak on Thursday visited a temple to “celebrate” Janmashtami. The 42-year-old former Chancellor was accompanied by his wife Akshata Murthy.
Sharing a picture on Twitter, he wrote: “Today I visited the Bhaktivedanta Manor temple with my wife Akshata to celebrate Janmashtami, in advance of the popular Hindu festival celebrating Lord Krishna’s birthday.”

Sunak met Murthy while studying MBA at Stanford University, got married in a two-day ceremony in Bangalore in 2006. They have two daughters, Krishna, 11, and Anoushka, 9.
Sunak’s family moved out of the flat above No. 10 Downing Street – the official residence used by the Chancellor of the Exchequer – in April in the wake of a controversy over Murty’s legal non-domicile tax status, which she later relinquished to pay taxes on her income from Infosys shares also in the UK to avoid the issue becoming a “distraction” for her husband. Now, as a contender for the top job, the former finance minister said that the family would return to Downing Street should he be elected as Conservative Party leader and the next Prime Minister to succeed Boris Johnson on September 5.
Meanwhile, a new survey on Thursday confirmed a 32-point lead of Foreign Secretary Liz Truss over former Chancellor Rishi Sunak in the Conservative Party leadership race, but also showed a strong preference among Tory members for outgoing prime minister Boris Johnson.
