New Delhi: British Deputy Prime Minister and Justice Minister Dominic Raab has resigned from his post. They have taken this decision after an independent investigation into formal complaints of bullying. In a letter published on Twitter to Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, Raab said the investigation had set a dangerous precedent but he would continue to support the government.
Raab said that I demanded an investigation and pledged to resign if any of the bullying was discovered. I believe that keeping your word is important. However, he added that the investigation has set a dangerous precedent. This will encourage fake complaints against ministers and will have a bad effect on change-makers from your government.
