PM Modi congratulates Keir Starmer on winning UK polls, thanks Rishi Sunak for his 'admirable leadership'

New Delhi/IBNS: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday congratulated Keir Starmer on winning the UK elections and said he was looking forward to a positive collaboration with the Labour leader. 

He also had a message for outgoing prime minister Rishi Sunak.

Starmer is set to replace Sunak as UK Prime Minister after the Labour Party defeated the Conservatives in day's elections.

"Heartiest congratulations and best wishes to @Keir_Starmer on the remarkable victory in the UK general elections. I look forward to our positive and constructive collaboration to further strengthen the India-UK Comprehensive Strategic Partnership in all areas, fostering mutual growth and prosperity," PM Modi said on X.

PM Modi thanked Sunak for his "admirable leadership" and his contributions in deepening the India-UK ties.

"Thank you @RishiSunak for your admirable leadership of the UK, and your active contribution to deepen the ties between India and the UK during your term in office. Best wishes to you and your family for the future," PM Modi said.

Promising to rebuild Britain and assuring that the work of change has begun, Labour leader Keir Starmer led his party to a landslide victory in the UK general polls, dethroning the Rishi Sunak government and his Conservative's 14-year-old rule in the grand old nation of the world.

"Country first, party second. That's how we will serve," Starmer said in his first speech as UK PM.

Winning over 412 seats in the British House of Commons, Labour Party ensured a return just four years after Starmer took the leadership of the party following the political outfit's disastrous show in the 2019 poll.

Sunak's Conservatives struggled by winning  121 seats in the 650-member house.
