British PM extends greetings on Tamil New Year

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 13 April 2011, 13:14 GMT]
Extending his warmest greetings to everyone celebrating the Tamil New Year, the British Prime Minister and the Leader of the Conservative Party, David Cameroon, on Wednesday said he acknowledged the significant contribution the Tamil diaspora makes to many aspects of British society.



Meanwhile, Thaksha Ravikulan from the British Tamil Conservatives (BTC), told TamilNet that many conservative MPs including Lee Scott, Andrew Rosindell, Robert Halfon, Theresa Villiers and Gavin Barwell were supporting the work of the BTC and have also joined the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Tamils.

The British Tamil Conservatives was formed in 2008 with the main purpose of raising the profile of the Tamil community in the UK and also bringing awareness of the suffering of the Tamils back home within the Conservative Party, according to Ms. Ravikulan.

British Tamil Conservatives New Year Message

I would like to extend my warmest greetings to everyone celebrating the Tamil New Year. I would also like to acknowledge the significant contribution the Tamil diaspora makes to many aspects of British society. That contribution is built upon enterprise, community, family and social responsibility - values the Conservative Party also holds dear.

So as you gather with your families and friends to celebrate this important festival, I would like to send you and your families my very best wishes for the New Year.

David Cameron
