The future Mayor of Harrow has proposed that London should be twinned with Kolkata.
The next Mayor of Harrow, present deputy mayor Minal Choudry, has proposed in an interview with the Times of India that London should be twinned with Kolkata.
Councillor Choudry’s interview is reported by the Harrow Observer: “Kolkata, after all, was the gateway to the British Empire in the subcontinent. In many ways, it had been modelled after London. So I plan to propose a twin-city arrangement between Kolkata and London after I take over as the mayor.”
