May praises British-Indians in Diwali message
Hailing the contribution of British- Indians, UK Prime Minister Theresa May has said she would highlight their success during her first official visit to India next month. May praised British-Indians in her message at the annual Diwali celebrations in the House of Commons on Wednesday.
“In Britain’s Indian communities, we can see the good that can be done when people’s talents are unleashed. I think of all those running their own businesses, taking risks and working hard so that they can provide for their families and take on staff,” May said in her message, read out by Bob Blackman, the parliamentary host of the annual Diwali event organised by the Hindu Forum of Britain.
She said she would be highlighting this success when she visits India next month on the invitation of PM Narendra Modi. “I will be so proud to highlight the achievements of British-Indians next month when I make my first official visit to India as Prime Minister at the invitation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” May said.
