On Thursday 3rd of May 2012 there will be elections for Mayor of London, Member of London Assembly as well as Local Council elections. It is imperative that Hindu community participates in the election process by going out and voting. The Hindu community has to become active within national and local politics to ensure we have a strong voice. We have to instil our united philosophy and ethos within the political landscape of the country for the betterment of our community as well as the communities at large. Hindus have been contributing to this country economically, socially, spiritually and culturally, we have to ensure that this is recognised at every stage and level. As the saying goes “United we will stand, divided we will Fall”.
On Tuesday 24th April 2012, Conservative Party launched Conservative Friends of India group at the prestigious Royal Horticultural Hall in London. The initiative is the brainchild of Lord Dolar Popat of Harrow. It has the full support of the Prime Minister Dave Cameron. Lord Popat stated, “The purpose is to build a strong and sustainable relationship between the British Indian community and India. The integration of the British Indian community is one of modern Britain’s greatest success stories”. The Prime Minister gave a resounding support to the launch of the group and stated the values which the Indian community shares with the Conservative party including a desire to support the families, success in education, and achievement in business and supporting the communities. The event was attended by 1200 people and was a great success. The initiative was welcomed by the acting High Commissioner of India who also praised the work the British Indians are doing in United Kingdom and looks forward to a long term relationship between the two countries.
