In his final attempt to impress the Asian voters and support the party candidates, Ed Miliband, the Labour leader visited Harrow (Belmont circle) on the weekend and was joined by Harrow East candidate Uma Kumaran, Harrow West candidate Gareth Thomas and Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner’s Michael Borio as part of his campaign tour. He spoke to voters about a variety of key issues including tuition fees, diversity and the NHS.

Speaking about the criticism Miss Kumaran is facing for leaving a hustings early – despite making her apologies, Mr Miliband told the Harrow Times, “Of course you get personal attacks but Uma is tough enough to withstand them, and so am I...

“I’m proud of Uma’s campaign – she’s been knocking on thousands of doors every week, she’s been campaigning on local issues like the NHS and affordable housing, and I think she has shown with her energy her commitment to Harrow and her real enthusiasm to the values that would make her a perfect Member of Parliament.”
