UK MPs and British Tamils celebrate Thai Pongal in Parliament

Thai Pongal was celebrated with UK MPs and British Tamils at the Houses of Parliament last week.

Cultural performances accompanied words of support from British MPs from all three major parties at the event hosted by the All Party Parliamentary Group for Tamils and the British Tamils Forum.

The Thai Pongal day greeting of UK Prime Minister Theresa May was played at the event, and opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn also sent in a message to be read out.

The event saw Parliament’s Jubilee Room packed out with members of the Tamil community spanning generations, and was supported by British Tamil Conservatives, Tamils for Labour and Tamil Liberal Democrats.
