Boris Johnson resigns: One of the biggest ups and downs in the history of Britain, Boris Johnson’s tenure as Prime Minister, reached the verge of ending on Thursday. The pressure on him had increased after the sudden resignation of his own cabinet ministers Rishi Sunak and Sajid Javid.
Johnson, an advocate of strong India-UK ties, has no doubt called in New Delhi not only for close friendship with Prime Minister Narendra Modi but also for negotiations on a free trade agreement (FTA) keeping in mind the Diwali deadline this year. Will also be remembered for giving.
Victims of rebellion of allied leaders
In a speech announcing his resignation on the steps of Downing Street, Johnson said: “As we saw at Westminster, the tendency of humans to behave like those around them is strong, and when this happens, politics is far removed.” No one is remotely indispensable, and our brilliant Darwinian system will give another leader who is equally committed to helping this country get through this difficult time.
The outgoing prime minister attributed his resignation to the gimmicks of the party’s allies. Interestingly, the 58-year-old Conservative Party MP for UXbridge and South Ruislip in London, when he took office at 10 Downing Street in July 2019, himself led a similar campaign against the then Prime Minister Theresa May.
Protest against Theresa May
Johnson, who was foreign minister in Theresa May’s cabinet, stepped down in protest against Theresa May’s Brexit deal with the European Union (EU). In the mid-term general election held in December 2019, Britain’s voters gave Johnson a resounding mandate to Tory Party leader, and he won with a large majority.
Johnson had declared, “We are going to infuse energy into the country and we will keep Brexit.” In the first speech after the massive victory in the UK general election, Prime Minister Boris Johnson called for ending the Brexit chapter and trusting the people. But he was called upon to work day and night to live up to it.
Johnson spoke on Brexit
“This country now wants a break and a permanent break in the matter of Brexit,” he said. Johnson acknowledged the impact of the December election would last for nearly a century, in which he called on the previous government to address the difficulties of leaving the European Union.
Outlining plans ahead of Brexit, he said he would use this “extraordinary” mandate to bring the country closer together. Johnson acknowledged that the government-funded National Health Service (NHS) was a top priority for the British people.
Victims of criticism during the Corona period
Johnson appeared to be recovering from the situation amid widespread criticism over the alleged delay in imposing a complete lockdown to contain the outbreak of coronavirus infection in Britain and the country’s COVID-19 vaccination campaign was widely described as a success.
However, for this leader, who was twice Mayor of London, there was controversy and criticism. Be it the matter of his personal life or alleged extramarital affairs and political lapses. The most damaging case for him while being the Prime Minister was the Partygate incident. In this, in the midst of the Kovid lockdown, the organization of the party in Downing Street in violation of the rules and Johnson’s participation in it was revealed.
Scotland Yard fined
Scotland Yard fined them for holding a birthday party in Downing Street on June 19, 2020, while the controversy did not stop soon after he repeatedly apologized in Parliament on the issue. In the wake of this, he faced a no-confidence vote from leaders of his own party but survived the development in early June due to the support of his cabinet.
However, his problems did not stop and within a few weeks Rishi Sunak, the first Finance Minister of Indian origin, who was counted among his close aides, suddenly resigned from the post on Tuesday evening. Shortly before this, Health Minister Sajid Javid had resigned and said in a loud speech in Parliament that he could not give Downing Street the ‘benefit of the doubt’ after the Partygate and other scandals and that he believed the problem was at the top. level from .
Controversy over sexual misconduct
A few days ago, Johnson’s decision to appoint Chris Pinker as deputy chief whip despite allegations of sexual misconduct was condemned. Johnson, a former journalist and columnist, eventually had to step down as party leader, and this development is reminiscent of the circumstances of his predecessor Prime Ministers Theresa May and David Cameron leaving office.
