Tory panic in Harrow East!

Hurriedly put together, Tory campaign is jittery.
Very difficult for Bob Blackman to put aside his defeat by Navin Shah who is third term re-elected London assembly member for Brent and Harrow – was first elected in 2008 beating Tory member Bob Blackman.
Also, the Hindu card played by Tories at the last general election is not likely to help their campaign this time as the Labour candidate Navin Shah, an accomplished politician, is a prominent part of and well known in the “Hindu”/ “Gujarati” community that has been targeted by Tories.

Navin Shah might not have the same access to the temple membership telephone list but he played crucial part in building these temples in Harrow and around.
Referring to 2015 Harrow East Tory campaign, fortnightly columnist at Hindustan Times Sunny Hundal‏ tweeted, “This is astonishing. Tory MP in London playing Hindu divide-and-rule caste politics with leaflets for Hindus. Nasty”.
Thousands of leaflets were distributed urging people to vote Tory so that legislation outlawing caste discrimination could be blocked.
Inclusion or equal opportunities is not an obvious part of Mr Blackman politics – for example:
Black members of the Tory party reported Mr Blackman, the local London Assembly member and leader of the Tory group on Brent council at the time, of treating them in an “insensitive and unsympathetic” way.
The MP was questioned about employing his wife with no regards to equal opportunities.
Describing the Harrow Tories’ “unashamedly religiously divisive” tactics at the last general election, the then Labour candidate for Harrow East Uma Kumaran said they “really brought the worst politics of the sub-continent into our general election campaign”.
Sinking to those depths certainly left divisions in Harrow – you can’t claim to represent everyone if that’s how you win” she stated.
