Rishi Sunak Visits Temple On Janmashtami Along Wife Akshata. In honor of Janmashtami, Rishi Sunak and his wife Akshata Murthy visited a temple today. Rishi Sunak is a candidate for British Prime Minister.
“Today I went the Bhaktivedanta Manor temple with my wife Akshata to commemorate Janmashtami, in advance of the well-known Hindu festival marking Lord Krishna’s birthday,” Rishi Sunak said on Instagram.
A Hindu celebration called Krishna Janmashtami honors the birth of Lord Krishna. To commemorate the festival, a day of particular veneration for Hindus, devotees dress up idols and visit temples.

The couple wed in Bangalore, India, in 2006 after meeting when he was pursuing an MBA at Stanford University. The wedding took place over two days. The Southampton native Rishi Sunak, whose parents are of Indian descent, is now much behind Liz Truss in surveys.
The strategy, according to Rishi Sunak, is to “love bomb” the Tory membership, as he did in 2015 when he was chosen to run for Richmond in North Yorkshire as the party’s representative in Parliament. Liz Truss currently has a huge lead in the battle for Downing Street.
In the northern English city of Manchester on Friday night, Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak will conduct the next of twelve hustings throughout the summer-long election.
The results are expected to be announced on September 5, and the two candidates will keep campaigning to try and sway voters who are still undecided.
