When Rishi Sunak was appointed Prime Minister of Britain in 2022, the Murty family gained increased attention.
In a recent interview with the news outlet NDTV, Infosys founder Narayana Murthy and his writer wife Sudha provided some advice they gave to their daughter Akshata Murty and her husband, UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, on how to handle heightened public scrutiny. When Rishi Sunak was elected British prime minister in 2022, the family gained more attention.
Renowned lifestyle expert Sudha Murty claimed that she advised Akshata and Rishi to be truthful in their efforts towards aiding the country and to disregard the opinions of others.
“I often remind Akshata and Rishi that people talk about you because of your status. People will always talk about you if you’re honest, if you’re doing good deeds for your nation, your job, or whatever you’re doing. “Log on kaam hai kehna, log toh log kahenge.” Thus, disregard it,” Sudha Murty stated in an interview with NDTV.
“conduct that as long as the job you conduct complies with ethics and the law. God is the witness; you don’t need a witness of anybody else. While you work, let them speak. The well-known author said, “You should learn to let people talk and you do your task in the long run. It may influence you for a while.
Concerns over Akshata Murty’s closed company
The comments made by Sudha Murty coincided with British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak coming under fire from opposition parties in the UK over the closing of Catamaran Ventures, a business that Sunak and his wife Akshata Murty co-founded with support from Narayana Murthy, the founder of Infosys.
The activities of Catamaran Ventures UK were scrutinised after it was discovered that a number of the firms it backed received funding from government-funded initiatives.
It was discovered that the Prime Minister’s wife’s company had benefited from GBP 2 million in government Covid assistance programmes that Rishi Sunak had personally designed. Then, it became apparent that companies in which Ms. Murty had invested failed, costing the tax payers GBP 1 million. My coworkers and I have corresponded with government ministers and agencies on several occasions. Labour’s national campaign coordinator and shadow minister Pat MacFadden said, “In addition to the unanswered questions, Ms. Murty’s decision to liquidate her company raises several others that I believe need to be clarified in the public interest.”
