In December 2022, he was chosen by Sunak to join his new team at No10.
Jogia is also co-chair of the Conservative Friends of India, the party’s largest affiliate member group.
At his investiture ceremony, he was joined by his wife Priya Jogia, his father-in-law and former president of Lohana community north London, Deepak Jatania and his political mentor Lord Popat.
