The Prime Minister made a visit to a Neasden temple in the final run up to the general election to appeal to the British Hindu community.
David Cameron was joined by Conservative candidates Alan Mendoza and Luke Parker as they took part in an Abhishek ceremony at the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, on Brentfield Road, at the weekend.
It was the Prime Minister’s third visit to the Neasden Temple where he told spiritual leaders and worshippers of his vision for Britain’s diverse communities.
He praised the dedication of the volunteers, the music and the dance and said what stands out for him are “British Hindu values.”
He added: “In student numbers, in jobs, in apprenticeships, in Parliamentary seats, it will be the British Hindu community that leads the way. And I know that leadership will start right here in Neasden.”
