NRI Labour Party candidate accuses rival of supporting violence
London: A leading NRI labour candidate,
Virendra Sharma, seeking re-election in the May 6 UK general
election has claimed that his Conservative Indian-origin rival
is a supporter of violence.
In a lengthy letter to the Leader of the Conservatives,
David Cameron, Sharma seeking reelection from the Ealing
Southall constituency, said "Gurcharan Singh supports
violence and murder as legitimate tools against opponents."
Sharma told newsmen that Singh, a former Labour
Councillor who is contesting against the Labour in the
parliamentary election rejoiced when Indira Gandhi, former
prime minister of India, was assassinated.
Sharma produced alleged evidence of Singh`s remarks
after Gandhi was gunned down by her Sikh bodyguards.
Singh, a pro-Khalistan activist and then a Labour
councillor in the Borough of Ealing, told the Southall
Gazette, a local paper, that he felt a "sense of relief" at
the news, Sharma claimed.
