Bangla Sanglap Report:
Rabina Khan is a Lib Dem Councillor in Shadwell and came second in the Mayoral race in 2018. She runs a very busy councillor surgery raising a huge amount of casework for residents: from cleaner and greener streets, to holding social and private landlords to account and supporting local businesses. Rabina regularly appears in print and broadcast media, was a nominee at The National Diversity Awards 2021, and is a Special Advisor to the Lib Dem Leader in the House of Lords.
Rabina Khan said:
“As a Liberal Democrat Mayor, I would fight for a more equal, stronger and greener Tower Hamlets.
I want Tower Hamlets to be a national leader for a greener and sustainable economy in a post-Brexit, post-pandemic world that is still unequal for far too many.
We need inclusive climate change policies so people and communities are part of the debate for change without creating a them and us situation.
I have campaigned for life science investment in the borough to provide jobs and fill the gaps left by Brexit.
I want a Tower Hamlets that stands up for the rights of leaseholders devastated by fire safety bills, services charges, and will fight for commonhold.
A Tower Hamlets that holds unscrupulous landlords and rogue Housing Associations to account and builds the homes we desperately need.
A borough where everyone can afford to live, in a safe, clean, and friendly neighbourhood.
Where we support our children and young people for a brighter future and where our older and vulnerable citizens are not forgotten.
I have witnessed the struggles of our communities through the enormous impact of COVID and its repercussions on the most vulnerable.
I will be a strong advocate for the rights of all people, not just one section of the community.
I will work for an open, tolerant, and safer Tower Hamlets, inspiring change for a more equal, stronger and greener future.”
Rabina Khan’s campaign will be formally launched in the New Year.
