LONDON: Leading NRI industrialist Lord Swraj Paul has said the people of India want a good, honest and strong performance from the newly elected Indian Government.

Speaking at a function he hosted last evening at the London Zoo in memory of his daughter Ambika who died of leukemia in 1968, Lord Paul recalled his April trip to India and said the highlight of his visit was the elections.

“550 million people have voted with great maturity and the Indian voter is very mature and knows whom to vote for. Contrary to impressions in the western media, they have voted for a Government, which after 30 years is the most stable Government and we are looking forward to a very strong performance,” he told over 800 people, including High Commissioners, ambassadors and community leaders at the event.

He noted that “another very good aspect of the elections this time is that people have gone beyond the concept of caste and religion. They simply wanted good governance and more honesty from the Government.”

Paul, the Labour peer who had donated £1 million to prevent the London Zoo from closure in 1992, recalled that this was also the first time he was able to take his children and grandchildren to his birthplace Jalandhar in Punjab.
