Bengaluru, Global software major Infosys' co-founder N.R. Narayana Murthy on Thursday congratulated his son in-law Rishi Sunak on his appointment as Minister in the new Boris Johnson-led British government.
"Our advice to our children, including Rishi, has been to work hard, be honest and do good for society. We wish him well," Murthy told IANS in a statement here.
Married to Murthy's daughter Akshata, Sunak, 38, the Conservative Party MP from Richmond (Yorkshire), is one of the three Indian-born leaders appointed ministers by Johnson on Wednesday. He takes over as the Chief Secretary to the Treasury.
The other two are Alok Sharma and Priti Patel.
