Priti Patel MP along with Bob Blackman MP, Suella Fernandes MP, Nusrat Ghani MP, David Burrowes MP and Paul Scully MP visit Shri Vallabh Nidhi Mandir in Wembley and discuss the EU referendum….reports Asian Lite News
With just two weeks to go before the referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU, the Prime Minister’s UK India Diaspora Champion Priti Patel MP was invited by key members of the Hindu community to visit the Shri Vallabh Nidhi Mandir in Wembley and discuss the EU referendum. On the visit Priti was joined by Bob Blackman MP, Suella Fernandes MP, Nusrat Ghani MP, David Burrowes MP and Paul Scully MP.
Commenting on the visit Priti Patel MP said: “The British Asian community makes an immense contribution to both British culture and the economy. The referendum is an opportunity for them to exercise their right to vote in this historic election. For far too long those from the Commonwealth have been sidelined and discriminated against in favour EU migrants. Once we Vote Leave we will have a fair immigration policy which would bring in the brightest and the best from countries like India, Bangladesh, Australia and New Zealand.
“Once we untangle ourselves from the stagnant EU we would also be free to trade with super economies like India to boost the British economy whilst strengthening our relations with our strategic allies.’
Executive Chairman of the Mandir, Mr Narendra Thakrar said: “We were very grateful to welcome Priti Patel and the other distinguished Members of Parliament that accompanied her on this visit. It is very important that everyone votes in the upcoming EU referendum and it was good to discuss the campaign with members of Vote Leave today.
Mr Nathwani, owner of V B and Sons said: “It was very nice to meet members of the Vote Leave campaign at the hub of the Hindu community. It was not so long ago since the EU put the many grocery shops in England into turmoil when they imposed the mango ban. This had a negative impact on trade and we were delighted to have support of Priti Patel MP who lobbied for the ban to be lifted. To prevent such bans and bureaucratic decisions being imposed again by the EU we must Vote Leave on 23 June.
