Rishi Sunak, UK’s Prime Minister, to visit Delhi’s Akshardham temple tomorrow

UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak will visit the Akshardham temple located in Delhi on September 10, the last day of his three-day visit to India. On Friday, the UK PM called himself a “proud Hindu” and expressed his wish to visit a temple during his stay here.

“I’m a proud Hindu, and that’s how I was raised. That’s how I am. Hopefully, I can visit a Mandir while I’m here for the next couple of days,” he told ANI news agency. Rishi Sunak added that he celebrated Raksha Bandhan but did not have time to celebrate Krishna Janmasthami properly, so he hoped to “make up for it” by visiting a temple.

Rishi Sunak and his wife Akshata Murty arrived in Delhi on Friday to attend the two-day long G20 Summit which started on Saturday. They were greeted by Union Minister Ashwini Kumar Choubey with a “Jai Siya Ram”. They were also gifted with Rudraksh, a copy of Bhagavad Geeta and a Hanuman Chalisa.

The UK Prime Minister held a bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday on the sidelines of the G20 Summit. After the meeting, PM Modi shared a picture of them hugging and said they discussed ways to deepen trade linkages and boost investment between the two countries.
