Uday Nagaraju, Program Director, Mahatma Gandhi Future Leaders Programme (MGFLP) at Labour Friends of India (LFIN),is inviting people from the Kerala community to join the mentoring programme to develop the next generation of political leadership from those with Indian heritage.
Uday Nagaraju (pictured) is originally from Hyderabad and will take a lead role in the training programme.
Launched by Angela Rayner in August 2020, the MGFLP is a scheme for a new generation of Labour political leaders from the Indian Community in the UK. We want to grow and nurture new talent in the Labour Party, to take on roles across local, regional and national government.
The programme will cover modules such as community engagement, communications, social media, campaigns and leadership to help you take on roles across local, regional and national government.
Political leadership from the community is key for empowerment, and to enhance UK India relations.
Applications to the MGFLP are open, closing on 28th February 2021 with the six month program beginning in the spring and finishing at Labour Party conference next autumn. Candidates are expected to be resident in the UK and eligible to stand in British elections but also to be ready to play the full part in campaigning, organising, and developing the policy ideas required from the next generation of political leaders.
