I am absolutely delighted with the news that members of the Labour Party in Wembley Central have chosen Krupa Sheth to be their candidate in the Wembley Central by-election.
A quarter of the Labour Party are now under the age of 27 and more young people like Krupa are becoming actively involved with the Labour Party and being part of what Ed Miliband has been calling the new generation for change.
Krupa is 20 and if elected will not only be the youngest member of Brent Council, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she would be the youngest Councillor that Brent has ever had. She will also take my tag as being the youngest Councillor of Indian origin in the UK.
I have known Krupa for a few years now and in particular, her tireless campaigning during the 2010 general elections was inspirational. I have no doubt that Wembley Central will be well looked after with Krupa as their Councillor.
So come on Wembley Central, vote for Krupa Sheth to be your local Councillor on 22nd December!
