Sunak, the son-in-law of Infosys founder NR Narayana Murthy, and Fernandes are first-time ministers.The only Indian-origin minister to hold a cabinet position so far was Priti Patel, whose tenure as the secretary of international development lasted less than six months July to November 2017, when she was dropped for her ministerial overreach during a holiday in Israel.
