Bollywood glamour on London campaign trail for Ameet Jogia MBE

Ameet Jogia MBE is Co-Chair of the Conservative Friends of India (CFIN) diaspora group and has been on the campaign trail since he was confirmed as the Tory Parliamentary Candidate for Hendon, north-west London.

While he has not been short of star power in the past few weeks, including stop overs by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, there was a sprinkling of Bollywood glitz and glamour this week when actress Manisha Koirala joined the CFIN group.

“Great turnout in support of Co-Chair Ameet Jogia, the very popular and hardworking Parliamentary candidate for Hendon. It was fantastic to have the support of Bollywood megastar Manisha Koirala and the local residents,” CFIN said in a statement.

Soon after Sunak declared July 4 as the date of the UK General Election, Jogia had a message for the voters of Hendon: “Now, I have 43 days to convince you why I’m the best candidate for the job here in Hendon, and ask you to lend me your vote.

“I’ll be campaigning every day from here on out. Looking forward to the challenge.”

He has been focused on local issues, including transport, and recently secured a free shuttle between Colindale and Hendon stations as the former station heads for closure. “This is a huge win for our area. Thank you to everyone who spoke to me this week and helped make this happen,” he said.

Jogia’s six-point plan for Hendon also covers revatilising the Broadwalk, more police on the beat, funding for a local hospital, refurbishing and upgrading schools.

Meanwhile, Koirala – the Nepalese heritage star of Hindi cinema most recently seen in the new Netflix series ‘Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar’ – was earlier invited to 10 Downing Street where Prime Minister Rishi Sunak celebrated 100 years of the UK-Nepal Friendship Treaty, joined by Minister of State for Indo-Pacific Anne-Marie Trevelyan and the High Commissioner of Nepal.
