At the 1959 and 1963 elections he was elected to the Legislative Council at No.17 Quartier Militaire after standing as candidate of Labour Party. In 1967 he was elected to Legislative Council at Constituency No.8 (Quartier Militaire-Moka) as candidate of the Independence Party coalition alongside Mahess Teeluck and Abdool Razack Mohamed.In 1976 he was re-elected at No.8 alongside Mahess Teeluck.
