Priti Patel, Britain’s senior-most minister hailing from Indian-origin has resigned as International Development Secretary.
The 45-year-old took the step over her unauthorized secret meetings with Israeli politicians including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, that turned controversial.
She was Britain’s first Indian-origin Cabinet Minister and she was among the most active supporters of Brexit.
Prime Minister Theresa May sought answers from a Brexit campaigner on unsanctioned meetings.
PM May’s office has released Patel’s letter of resignation after the meeting.
Who is going to replace Patel as British aid minister is not known yet.
