Cllr Ajay Maru has been one of the Labour members seeking to be candidates in the London Assembly 2020 elections from Brent and Harrow.
Cllr Maru, from Kenton West, has been a local Councillor for the last 9 years and lived in the Harrow area for almost 20 years with family and with a business in Kenton. He has been in the local Labour Party- a Chair for Harrow East CLP, a member of LCF, a deputy Whip for the Labour Group on the Council and currently Cabinet Assistant for Business and Enterprise. Together with the Labour Party he is a member of the GMB trade union and a Co-Op Party member.
Speaking to Asian Voice, he said, “I will be an active member of this GLA constituency working on local issues and holding the Mayor of London to Account on behalf of my constituents. I am always being mindful of people’s welfare and wellbeing. Given the government cuts and the austerity I would continue to challenge Boris Johnson and the Tory government for the rights of the people.
“At strategic level I would contribute to London Assembly and Labour Groups work on London’s economy (including small businesses) regeneration, community cohesion, housing and safety of our communities (policing and crime).”
