Tulip Siddiq, a British parliament member and granddaughter of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, has said she will never stop fighting for those who properly recognised and supported her.
The Hampstead and Kilburn MP said this in her twitter handle after being appointed as the Shadow Economic Secretary to the Treasury (City Minister).
Tulip’s political success story highlights the ambitions of aspirational women across the world seeking due space in political landscape as they are held hostage to male power, according to political analysts.
In her tweet, Tulip said, "After nearly six years as Shadow Early Years Minister, I'm pleased to be taking on the role of Shadow Economic Secretary to the Treasury (City Minister). I'm looking forward to a new challenge in Shadow Chancellor at Rachel Reeves MP's team.”
“Championing the early years’ sector from the Labour frontbench has been a privilege, she said, adding that early education is crucial in shaping children's life chances. “I will never stop fighting for those who provide it to be properly recognised and supported.”
Tulip went on saying, “They truly are unsung heroes. There’re too many people I want to thank for all the support they've given me in holding the Government to account on early years.”
As Shadow Minister for Children and Early Years, Tulip said, she has also fought for better support for vulnerable children, looked after children, children with “SEND” and those eligible for free school meals.
“Thanks to all the campaigners and organisations who supported me in this work. I know my successor Helen Hayes will do an amazing job of standing up for children and those working to support them, and I wish her and the new Shadow Education Secretary,” Tulip mentioned.
In May 2015, Tulip was first elected to Britain’s House of Commons from Hampstead and Kilburn in London and she drew the international attention with her maiden speech in parliament.
Tulip, a member of the Labour Party, was reelected from the Hampstead and Kilburn in 2019.
Tulip Siddiq captured a spot on The Progress 1000 list of the Evening Standard in October, 2019 to become one of the most influential politicians of London.
