LONDON: British prime minister David Cameron received a special delivery on Monday - Indian alphonso mangoes.
UK's longest serving MP of Asian origin and Jayshree Makadia, a London-based fruit trader vsited the prime minister's residence 10 Downing Street on Monday to deliver a shipment of Indian alphonso mangoes following the lifting of the European Union ban earlier this year.
Vaz said "The delivery of these delicious Alphonso mangoes to the PM fulfils a promise made during the superb campaign to lift the European Union's ban on India's 'King of Fruits'. Prime minister Cameron's support for those of us who opposed the ban was critical, and it seems right that we now fulfil our end of the bargain. The work undertaken to resolve this issue serves to demonstrate how quickly and efficiently problems can be solved when the UK and India work together".
