The British Conservative party sent wishes to the Tamil community to mark Tamil new year celebrations.
In a message to the British Tamil community, the chariman of the party Sir Patrick Mcloughlin MP, said,
“I would like to send my best wishes to everyone celebrating Puthandu today.
The Tamil community is a huge success story doing great things for the UK. From small business owners creating jobs and apprenticeships, to doctors, nurses and teachers making an important contribution to our health service and schools, the Tamil community continue to enrich our society.
So to everyone celebrating Puthandu here in the UK and across the globe, I wish you a very happy and prosperous New Year.”
