Why on earth would they make India proud?

 

Because Indians believe they are Indians.

But well done to them. That Dhesi guy is from Gravesend isn't he?

They are only Indians if they don't believe in Sikh rights.

He is from Gravesend. He was mayor.

Is he a conviction politician, and what will he do for the Sikh community?

Will he stand up for what he believes in? Is he a politician to help people or for himself (name/fame/money etc)?

Yeh, that's a bit of bummer if he is? What did he do for the community as a mayor?

I don't understand the first part of your post. The answer to the second question, is 'I don't know'. 

Maybe someone from Gravesend or who knows this guy well can answer

What I meant was it's a shame if he is.

Wikipedia entries:

He is the son of Jaspal Singh Dhesi, who runs a construction company in the UK, and who is the former president of Gurdwara Guru Nanak Darbar, in Gravesend, the largest Gurdwara in the UK.

Dhesi has a bachelor's degree in mathematics with management studies from University College London, studied applied statistics at Keble College, Oxford, and has a Master of Philosophy in the history and politics of South Asia from Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge.[1]

This seems really good, especially the MPhil he has South east Asia history.

But then the next paragraph is so dodgy.

In 2012, his mother, Dalwinder Kaur Dhesi, was jailed in India, for kidnap and forcing an abortion on a teenage mother, who later died.[4][5]

I did some research regarding this, and this is regarding the girl involved with the ex SGPC president Jagir Kaur (was it her daughter or daughter in law).

So with the Dad being involved in Gurdwara committee, the Mum being involved in nefarious activity with an SGPC President - and the son is active in politics. As sikhs, I am sure we have learnt to be careful of all politicians including SGPC, Gurdwara committees and government.

I thought everyone knew this about Dhesi? It's common knowledge. 

Jagir's Kaur's daughter was involved with another guy who came from a "different caste". 

How he will navigate through the forthcoming caste discrimination bill and associated debate, any debates about so called "honour" violence and/or killings remains to be seen.

Jagir Kaur's daughter was a married  woman By Anand Karaj , and was expecting her husband's child, on the pretext of recounciliation the girl let down her guard and this is when she was drugged  and kidnapped . The abortion was done on her in that state because of her unconscious state they didn't know things were going wrong until it was too late. So his Mum was an accompolice to kidnapping and manslaughter
