Why I am Standing

Why I am Standing

I am a passionate Labour Party member and I live in Ilford South, I am Cross qualified as solicitor and a Barrister. However, I am practicing as a solicitor. I also work as the editor a local Bengali by weekly Bilingual Newspaper for last 15 years. I am seeking your support and vote at the selection process of Ilford South Labour Parliamentary candidate.

I was born in Bangladesh and migrated to the UK after the completion of my graduation. I was called to the Bar from the Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn in 2004 I set up my own practice in 2006. It is now a solicitors firm called “Kingdom Solicitors”. I have also been running a bilingual newspaper called Weekly Bangla Post since2004 where I work as the editor on pro bono basis. At this time of Tory austerity and cut inflicted country we need a strong voice in Ilford South who can fight for the cause of local people. I think I can do it on your behalf. I have been a member of the Labour party for more than half a decade and was the secretary of Little Ilford branch of East Ham CLP.

I have achieved a lot following my migration to the UK from Bangladesh. I came from a middle class Bangladeshi family. My school teacher father had taught me how to fight. I came to this country with only £79 and I made this country my home.  I have paid my graduation fees by working part time in restaurants. With Barclay’s student loan I have completed by Barrister at Law course which I paid later on . Within few years of my arrival in the UK I have qualified as a Barrister and  I have opened my own immigration firm and later I converted to my firm as a solicitor . As an Immigrant I know people’s struggle to achieve their goal. I have joined labour party in 2006 when I have realised that to help disadvantage and voiceless people there is no other alternative to join this socialist movement. In my opinion to get Jeremy Corbyn as our Party  leader is a blessing for the party and member of the labour party . To establish the rights of mass people we need a government who speaks for the  majority of the people.

Jeremy Corbyn is the leader who attracted many people from various background because of his leadership and policy .  I am a fighter. As a solicitor and an advocate, I fight for my clients’ day in day out. I fight for people’s cause. I have experience and the ability to win a fight. I strongly believe that I can fight for the cause of Labour party and for the cause of local issues. As I live in Redbridge, it will be easier for me to lead any campaign compared to other candidates who do not live in Redbridge.It gives me immense pleasure when I can see joy is someone’s face and the smile is the result of my hard work. I make a difference to people’s lives on a daily basis. If I am selected, I will make a difference for the people of Ilford South. As a lawyer, I fight for people’s right on a daily basis. As a prospective candidate, I hope to champion people’s cause and make a difference in people’s lives. Please support me and vote for me to be elected as Labour PPC for Ilford South.
