Johnson-Modi handshake on bypoll leaflet spurs row

London, July 15

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Opposition Leader Keir Starmer clashed in the House of Commons over a controversial byelection leaflet, which had been branded “divisive” and “anti-India” by Indian diaspora groups in Britain.

During a heated debate over the issue of racism at the Prime Minister’s Questions (PMQs) session on Wednesday, Johnson held up the leaflet showing him in a handshake with Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the G7 Summit in 2019 with the message “Don’t risk a Tory MP who is not on your side”.
