A new group to forge links between the Sikh community and the Labour Party was by Sikh MP Parmjit Dhanda and Labour Party Vice Chair for Faith Groups, Stephen Timms MP.

‘Sikh Friends of Labour’ was launched in Parliament on Thursday 30th April at a celebration event timed to coincide with Vaisakhi, the festival which celebrates the founding of the Sikh nation.

The new group has been formed by Sikhs and MPs from across the country and will provide a platform for Sikhs to come together to share their views and have their voices heard in the Labour Party.
