Controversies• Tax Arrangements of Akshata Murty
On 7 April 2022, many British neswpapers reported that Rishi Sunak’s wife, Akshata Murthy, claims a non-domiciled tax status in the UK. Acording to British law, this means that she does not have to pay taxes on dividend benefits received from overseas companies. Moreover, amid the Russia-Ukraine War, the opposition questioned Ms. Murthy’s income from Infosys that was still operating some of its functions in Russia; this was when Mr. Sunak himself regularly urged British companies to exit Russia to “inflict maximum economic pain” on the Vladimir Putin administration. Later, it was reported that Infosys had decided to nwithdraw its services from Russia.
• Faced Backlash for not Supporting Transwomen
During a 2022 interview, Rishi Sunak was asked if he considered a transwoman to be a woman to which he responded “no;” he faced backlash on the internet from those who support transgender rights. In a 2022 YouTube video, he said,,
“It is important to have compassion and respect for people’s views. When it comes to questions like toilets or sports, you know, I’m of the view that biology is important, it’s fundamental, it’s critical to how we approach those types of questions.” 
However, Rishi Sunak previously expressed support for the transgender community. According to sources, while speaking to LGBT+ Conservatives, he said,
“Prejudice against trans people is wrong. The Conservative Party is an open, welcoming family to everybody across society, no matter who they are and irrespective of their background. I have the track record of delivery, a clear plan to fix the biggest problems we face and I will deliver on the promise of the 2019 manifesto.”
