SIKH REPRESENTATIVES MEET UK DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER LATER TODAY

26 March 2013

The Sikh Federation (UK) has organised and is leading a meeting with the Deputy Prime Minister, Rt. Hon. Nick Clegg later today in the Cabinet Office.

Bhai Amrik Singh, Chair of the Sikh Federation (UK) said:

We first met the Leader (Nick Clegg) and Deputy Leader (Simon Hughes) of the Liberal Democrats in April 2011 at Guru Teg Bahadur Gurdwara, Leicester before the Leicester South by election in May 2011. The meeting today with Rt. Hon. Nick Clegg will be in his role as the Deputy Prime Minister.

The fact the meeting is taking place with the Deputy Prime Minister is in itself an achievement. However, we are hopeful Nick Clegg will respond positively to the range of issues we will be raising with him.

The Sikh Federation (UK) has put together an impressive Sikh delegation comprising leading figures in the Sikh Federation (UK), prominent representatives of the Sikh Council UK, politically active young Sikhs and important media representatives who will be at the meeting.

Last week Rt. Hon. David Cameron during Prime Minister Questions spoke about the immense contribution the British Sikh community makes to the UK and his appreciation for this and the respect that should be shown to Sikhs.

Bhai Amrik Singh added: It appears all the leading political parties and their leaders are going out of their way to be seen to support the British Sikh community. This is very welcome however the community will judge them for their actions on difficult issues as opposed to their gratifying words.
