A leader has to take many responsibilities to shape up his team. Liberal Democrats leader Tim Farron has made all the right decisions so far in order to make the party more successful.
One of his best decisions has been to promote cultural diversification of the party.
A crucial development in that direction came when Indian-born businessman Sudhir Choudhrie, was appointed as the Indian adviser. With strong business knowledge, Choudhrie will help the party devise strategies for improving Britain’s foreign and business relationships with India. He can also act as a route for UK-Indians to share their needs and concerns with the party.
Farron approved of Choudhrie’s business experience and how it will help the party: “India is a key strategic partner for the United Kingdom and the British-Indian community contributes so much to our country. I am determined that the Liberal Democrats do all we can to maximise the economic, cultural and social benefit of these relationships. Sudhir has been a committed supporter of the Liberal Democrats for many years and I look forward to being able to draw on his vast business experience, unparalleled network in both the UK and India, and wise political counsel.” Further, he has also promised an India visit this year.
Choudhrie reiterated his long-standing respect for Lib Dems, “I have long believed that the Liberal Democrats best embody the internationalist and pro-enterprise values that characterise the British-Indian community. India, with its ever vibrant and expanding consumer market of over 1.2 billion people, and home to more than a quarter of the worlds millennials, is slated to emerge as the worlds third largest economy by 2030, which makes the country extremely attractive. It is critical that both India and UK collaborate on a common agenda of growth and I am honoured by Tim Farrons decision to ask me to fulfil this role, especially coinciding with Prime Minister Modi’s visit to the UK.’’
To ensure everyone benefits from cultural diversification, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities are also in Farron’s plans.
