Boris Johnson resigns as UK Prime Minister
New Delhi : Amid mounting pressure from leaders inside the cabinet, Boris Johnson finally resigned as the UK Prime Minister.
Boris Johnson is among the few key leaders who have a great friendship with India, he will be remembered in India for pushing free trade agreement (FTA) negotiations towards a Diwali 2022 deadline.
"As we have seen at Westminster, the herd instinct is powerful and when the herd moves, it moves and my friends in politics no one is remotely indispensable and our brilliant Darwinian system will produce another leader, equally committed to taking this country forward through tough times," said Johnson in his resignation speech.
It must be noted that he had become the UK PM in May 2019 after a similar coupe was held against then PM Theresa May.
His thumping mandate in that party vote was reinforced by the British electorate in a snap general election in December 2019, which Johnson won with a whopping majority on the promise to “Get Brexit Done”.
