Patel, who sits on the UK Cabinet as Employment Minister and is also British Prime Minister David Cameron’s Indian Diaspora Champion, in a statement said, “I would like to congratulate Prime Minister Modi on the second anniversary of his election victory. He set out an ambitious vision for India – one of inclusive, sustainable development.”

She said, “We remain committed to supporting the Prime Minister’s vision for India’s transformation and to taking the UK-India relationship to new heights.”

The 44-year-old senior Conservative party MP said as the world’s oldest democracy and largest democracy, the UK and India share a long-standing friendship anchored in democratic values, shared history and common interests.

“Prime Minister Modi has set a new level of ambition for our growing partnership,” she said.

Patel, herself of Gujarati-origin, has been a vocal supporter of Modi in the UK since he was the chief minister of Gujarat.
