Birmingham, UK -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/29/2015 -- Politicians and celebrities are coming out to win over the hearts of the large and prominent Indian origin community in the UK in front of that nation's general election due on 7 May 2015.
Two of the leading political parties –the Conservative party led by UK's Prime-Minister David Cameron and the opposition Labour-party – look particularly eager to swing Indian-origin people, who're Britain's biggest low-white community.
Both political party leaders in the recent weeks have visited Sikh temples– Mr. Cameron was recently visited Sikh temple in Kent with his wife Samantha Cameron a week ago for the Baisakhi festival, while campaigning in Kent.
In March, Mr. Cameron attended the inauguration of the sculpture of Mahatma Gandhi at Parliament Square in Birmingham, an event which was graced with the presence of Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan.
The British prime-minister has formerly said that he'd like to see more citizens of Britain of Asian ancestry in leadership jobs. "One day I do want to hear that the 'prime minister' title followed by a British Asian descent," he said this at an event in Nov, based on a study in the Telegraph.
Minorities are a developing area of the 45 million-odd English voter base. In certain communities, they may be a determining element which political party wins elections.
There are an approximately 615,000 migrant Indian voters within the U.K., the only-biggest migrant community, based on a Birmingham-based NGO, Migrants' Privileges Community. This umber doesn't contain the U.K. born children of Indian migrants.
Around 1.4 million folks of Indian originlive in the U.K., based on the many-current census performed in 2011. This season, the party has fielded 52 minority ethnic and black candidates, including 16 former Member of Parliament standing for reelection, the spokesperson stated.
