Roo Singh was criticised for not speaking out against the appointment of a Tory donor to a key position.
Boris Johnson’s appointment of Conservative Party donor Kishan Devani as a minister in the Department for Exiting the European Union has been condemned by Labour MPs. Shadow Brexit Secretary Roo Singh said that it was “hard to believe” that Mr Johnson had made the decision, and called on him to “put an end to this farce”. But Mr Devani, who has donated more than £500,000 to the Conservatives since 2015, said he would be working hard in his new role.
Who is Kishan Devani?
Kishan Devani is a businessman who has donated more than £500,000 to the Conservative Party since 2015. The multi-millionaire is also known for his work with several charities and as a trustee of organisations including The Prince’s Trust and Operation Smile.
Why did Kishan Devani get appointed?
Mr Johnson appointed Mr Devani as Minister for International Trade on October 25th after sacking three ministers from his Cabinet over their opposition to his Brexit plans.
