Britain: Modi’s picture on Labor Party’s campaign material in the by-election

Labor Party leaders also do not agree on this propaganda material

New Delhi Date. Wednesday, June 30, 2021

Britain’s main opposition Labor Party is currently targeting Indian tourist groups for taking photographs. That picture shows the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi. This picture has been printed to show a false picture of India in the by-election campaign to be held in northern England. Because of this, Indian tourist groups are now calling the Labor Party ‘divisive’ and ‘anti-India’.

A picture of Prime Minister Modi shaking hands with the leader of the Conservative Party and British PM Boris Johnson has been printed on the Labor Party’s propaganda material. “If people there vote for another party, there is a danger of seeing such a picture, but the Labor Party is clear on this,” the Labor campaign said in a statement.

Labor Party stuck because of Modi’s image

Boris Johnson’s Conservative MP Richard Holden questioned the Labor Party by sharing the poster on Twitter. “Does this mean that Labor leader Kir Starmer will not be seen shaking hands with the Indian Prime Minister?” Holden wrote.

. @AngelaRayner Comes in like butter doesn’t melt on @BBCr4today but @UKLabour is making it out

1) Won’t @Keir_Starmer meet Narendra Modi?
2) Workers are, again, playing identity politics, for which they have to go to @georgegalloway! pic.twitter.com/7L1JhVlBiM

The Conservative Friends of India, an organization of the Indian community, has also surrounded the Labor Party. At the same time, the question is whether any Prime Minister or politician of the Labor Party will refuse to have ties with the world’s largest democracy. Is this your message to the over 1.5 million members of the Indian community in the UK?

Labor leaders are also divided on this issue. Labor Friends of India has demanded his immediate return. Virender Sharma, a senior Labor MP of Indian origin, has also criticized the move.
