I write to comment on a letter that appeared in the Letters column of the Gazette of October 17 under the heading, Who Needs This Man?
Well, I did, and perhaps many others who are under-privileged, poor and in need of support, and those who need a sympathetic ear, also need him.
I had been languishing on the housing waiting list of the council for more than four years, and despite my trying was not getting anywhere.
Finally, I got in touch with Councillor Singh at his surgery and visited him numerously at his home - at times unannounced and without any appointment, and sometimes as late as 8pm.
I have always found him to be courteous, helpful and prepared to 'go an extra mile' to help. He was very receptive and his wife was even more welcoming and offered me a cup of tea or any other soft drink.
It has been due to his efforts that I'm now adequately housed, and I am indebted to him for his efforts.
I wish there were more people in the world like him.
Mr Dhillon, I suggest that you get to know Cllr Singh better by visiting him and do not believe what his political opponents tell you about him.
From your letter, I suspect, you do not know Cllr Singh.
