Indian-origin British PM Sunak's policies are heavy on Indians only

The British government led by Rishi Sunak is implementing a tough policy to curb illegal immigrants. But, it is affecting the legal Indian expatriates living there. During the last four years, the UK Home Office ordered about 63,000 migrants not to provide jobs to various government departments out of about 4.5 lakh individual applications. Of these, 21 thousand are Indians.
Dainik Bhaskar's detailed investigation of different government departments and affected Indians revealed that due to apartheid and racial identity, Indians are considered illegal migrants. His documents get rejected.
Legitimate Indians are facing difficulties in opening bank accounts, availing of healthcare facilities and travelling. On the other hand, Indian-origin Home Minister Suella Braverman has recently given a statement supporting Sunak's policies that she wants to send illegal immigrants to Rwanda (an African country). Encouraged by this attitude of the government, white racist organizations are continuously attacking migrants and refugees.
A government report assessing policies in the UK acknowledged discrimination against South Asians, particularly immigrants from India. Talking to Dainik Bhaskar, a government official admitted that strict policies have not been very effective in identifying people living illegally in Britain. Most government agencies dealing with immigration make decisions on the basis of colour.
Human rights activist Susan Herr alleges that the rights of legitimate asylum seekers have been taken away. Whereas, a quarter to three lakh people coming from Ukraine has been given asylum.
