Congratulations Lord Sahota
Telford Councillor Kuldip Sahota is now Lord Sahota having been granted a Peerage.
Lord Sahota has served people of Telford in many public roles over the last 20 years, since his days working at GKN.
Not just politics though, he can often be found donning an apron in his family cafe in Wellington Market, and produced a documentary on the 1919 Amritsar events ‘Massacre in a Holy City”.
Councillor Kuldip Sahota said: “It will be a great honour and a privilege to sit in the House of Lords representing Telford and its different faith communities.
“I want to take the opportunity to thank my wife and family for their unstinting support over many many years.
“I am forever grateful for the trust and support placed in me by the people of Telford and The Wrekin, without which this would not be possible.
“As the son of a foundry worker, it has been my pleasure to represent my local community on the council and I pledge to continue to fight for the very best for the borough when I take up my position in the House of Lords.”
