I’m a long-term Euston resident, along with my wife and three children.  I am a professionally-qualified chef with over ten years’ experience and I have worked in many local hotels.

I’m very active in the local Bengali community and have served as General Secretary of the Camden Bangladeshi Welfare Association for the last five years.  I’m a proven community campaigner and will always put the people of Bloomsbury first.

If elected, I will fight for faster repairs and a more responsive housing department, improve child protection in Camden, and work to further strengthen relationships between the various community groups in our area.

Having lived in Bloomsbury for almost 25 years, I feel deeply rooted in our area and close to many of the people who live and work here. My passion lies in helping people to get going with their lives, an idea that links my work in education and helping people to start and grow new businesses.

I have studied and worked at UCL, been a governor of Regent High School for nearly 10 years, and supported Camden Citizens Advice Bureaux as a trustee. As a councillor, I will fight to improve our local education provision and support new businesses that help create local jobs and opportunities.

I was born and raised in Camden. It is home to my wife and I, and our three children. So you can imagine how passionate and protective I am of the local area, just as you no doubt are too.

I want the best for Bloomsbury, its residents and local businesses, but in Camden, we face far too many challenges that have reached crisis level – a lack of affordable homes to buy and rent, visible homelessness reaching incredible and unacceptable levels, too much violent crime that often leaves us feeling unsafe to walk our streets, far too much air pollution harming the lives of so many.

If elected, I will fight for you on these and other  issues,  and ensure that you get the sort of representation you deserve.
