Britain 'officially' has first NRI cabinet minister

Speaking at a British Asian dinner, Sajid Javid, Britain's secretary of state, aka cabinet minister for culture, media and sport, disclosed the fact that his father was from India and his mother from Pakistan. He had always been described as being of Pakistani origin, but his Indian connection was hitherto not known publicly. Javid, a former banker who has an English wife, is a rising star in Conservative British politics who has risen swiftly through the ranks and is tipped to become a future party leader.
