Virendra Sharma MP, yesterday, opened his campaign office, 1 March 2015 at 90 South Road, Southall, UB1 1RD. The guest of honour was Gareth Thomas, Member of Parliament for Harrow West, who hosted 500 people saying yes to Labour in May.
500 local residents, in two hours, visited Virendra Sharma’s newly opened campaign office. The official opening, and ribbon cutting ceremony, was at 3pm and Gareth Thomas MP, officially declared the office open. Hundreds of people packed into the office welcomed by Virendra Sharma, Ealing councillors, and local businesses. A huge card was presented to Virendra Sharma MP by Claude Moraes MEP from everyone present wishing him success, and predicting a Labour victory in May.
Local MP for Ealing Southall, Virendra Sharma said:
“The show of support from constituents and even people from further afield on Sunday was spectacular. The response was even better than expected, and seeing so many people give me their support was a real honour.
With only two months until the General Election people have woken up to the idea that without their support there could be a Conservative government for another five years. The NHS will not survive another five years under the Tories, only Labour’s long term plan to protect services by integrating health and social care will save the NHS.
Having my family here supporting me is a great comfort, especially Ria and Aatish my two grandchildren, and my lovely wife Nirmala. Inviting Gareth Thomas to Ealing again was a pleasure, and we showed him a great Southall welcome.”
