London: Liz Truss, Britain’s third female Prime Minister, resigned from the top post on Thursday after one of the shortest tenures at 10 Downing Street in London and without a cherished India-UK free trade agreement (FTA) under her belt as a Brexit prize.
Truss, who until Wednesday insisted in Parliament that she was a “fighter and not a quitter”, resigned just six weeks after her position became untenable post a series of policy U-turns, Cabinet upheavals and an open revolt against her ability to lead a deeply divided Conservative Party.

Truss, who in her innings as foreign and trade minister batted for stronger bilateral ties with India, took charge at 10 Downing Street last month after defeating Indian-origin ex-chancellor Rishi Sunak in the Conservative Party leadership race.
Soon after Truss resignation, reports of Boris Johnson’s entry to contest as the successor of Liz Truss furnished. Johnson was forced out of No 10 on September 6 this year but he is understood to now be taking soundings about trying to get his old job back.

Rishi Sunak, is also seen as a possible frontrunner in that race but a consensus within a divided Tory party remains elusive, with the Opposition Labour Party renewing calls for an immediate general election.
Liz’s resignation comes a day after Home Secretary Braverman’s explosive exit from the Cabinet after admitting a breach of the ministerial code by discussing government policy in private emails and a scathing parting attack on her boss.
