On the day that the Labour Party manifesto was issued, Dame Margaret Beckett held a public meeting at the Indian Community Centre. It was attended by around 50 people mainly from the Sikh community. Her main emphasis was around the National Health Service and the view that re-electing the Conservatives would be highly damaging to its future. She was joined by a number of local Councillors ( Balbir Sandhu, Jangir Khan, Gulfraz Nawaz, and Hardyal Dhindsa) and the prospective Labour candidate for Blagreaves, Amo Raju.
There were questions at the end, but nothing that a seasoned politician like Dame Margaret could not fend off with general rhetoric.
