Raj is a well known parish councillor and local businessman. His convenience store on Quakers Road is an important community hub for Bromley Heath, Downend and Frenchay.

Having originally trained as a Civil Engineer, Raj has found his knowledge especially useful in contributing to planning and financial issues considered by Downend and Bromley Heath Parish Council, where he represents Downend ward. Now that his children – who attended local schools – are older, Raj wants to use his experience to serve the wider community and stood as the Liberal Democrat candidate in the 2021 Frenchay and Downend council by-election, where he reduced the Conservative majority drastically to a mere 221.
