I have been involved in a number of social and cultural organisations for last 35 years. I have served as Chair, secretary and Trustee. I am a founder member of The Asian Centre, Wood Green, which was established in the early 80’s. I, as social and cultural secretary of The Council of Asian People Haringey, was the force behind the start of Luncheon Club for the elderly at the Asian Centre. In the mid 80’s my business commitment took me to Dagenham. In 1986 and 1994 I campaign against Sunday shopping and lobbied Parliament. In the early 90’s I was the Barking & Dagenham branch secretary of the National Federation of News Agents. I have been active in politics since 1997. In 2003 as East London branch President of the National Federation of Sub-Postmasters, I organised meetings with the then post office minister, the Hon. Stephen Timms MP, and local MP, the Hon. Jon Cruddas. I met with them on several occasions in an attempt to save the Post office prior to the Parliamentary vote.

I have a wide range of experience including Founder and President of Valence Residents Association for 6 years, borough councillor for 5 years, Chair of School Governors, working closely with the Safe Neighbourhood Police teams, and neighbourhood management co-ordinator. I enjoy cordial relations with the local African Churches, English Church, Gurdwara and Temple as well as several voluntary organisations.
