RE: Correction: Police called in amid chaos as Labour selects Lutfur Rahman’s election candidate for Poplar & Limehouse (https://www.eastlondonadvertiser.co.uk/news/politics/labour-general-election-at-poplar-limehouse-1-6345244 )
I have noticed that you have mentioned me, in the Poplar and Limehouse selections story, which you published yesterday. However, you have not afforded me the right to reply, as I am the only Labour Councillor named. Given that you know the background to the filing and technical errors by Momentum vis a vis the Electoral Commission, which I have communicated to you previously (see the email of 8 Mar 2019), and published here: (https://www.eastlondonadvertiser.co.uk/news/politics/cllr-puru-miah-admits-momentum-s-election-offences-1-5927212)
As it stands your current article, misrepresents the facts, if it does not include my response at the time, which you have clearly published previously. I am concerned that you are singlehandedly mentioned me as the only named supporter, of Apsana Begum when there are two other councillors. I would kindly ask you a correction to your story, to mention my statement at the time, on your article on the Electoral Commission Fine of Momentum.
