UK Home Secretary Priti Patel on Monday resigned from the Cabinet in a letter to the outgoing Prime Minister Boris Johnson and said she plans to support his successor Liz Truss from the backbenches of Parliament.
Priti is expected to be succeeded by another Indian-origin lawmaker - Suella Braverman. Baverman, on the other hand, is not only expected to succeed Patel but is likely to be the only Indian-origin lawmaker in Truss cabinet.
