Rishi Sunak adores sacred Hindu thread during his maiden speech

The first Indian-origin and Hindu Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Rishi Sunak was seen wearing the sacred red Hindu Kalawa thread at the time of his first speech at 10 Downing Street. Kalawa is a cotton red thread roll, considered to be very sacred and is used for all religious purposes of the Hindus. The thread is an integral part of any pooja ceremony and is used as an offering of cloth to the deity.

The speciality of the thread is, it acts like your defence and hence you win over the enemies. When Sunak waved to the public from outside No 10 Downing Street, he was observed wearing a Kalawa. 

Yesterday, he was honoured with a series of firsts such as The first Indian-origin person to lead the UK, The first non-white person of colour to become the UK’s PM, at the age of 42, he is also the youngest person to take the office in more than two hundred years, and the first PM to take oath under the new KIng Charles III. 

During his first public speech in the UK, Sunak said, “I was elected for the mistakes of former PM Liz Truss. I want to pay tribute to my predecessor Liz Truss. She wasn’t wrong to want to improve growth in this country. It is a noble aim and I admired her restlessness to create change but some mistakes were made, not born of bad intentions but mistakes nonetheless.”

He further said that his government will possess integrity, professionalism and accountability at every level. He said the government will create a future worthy of the sacrifices so many have made and fill tomorrow and every day thereafter with hope.
