Uttam promises security, welfare of Christians

Hyderabad, Oct 29 (UNI) Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President Capt N Uttam Kumar Reddy promised that the Congress party, if voted to power in next elections, would ensure security and welfare of Christian community in Telangana State.

Addressing a meeting of All India Christian Federation at YMCA, Secunderabad on Monday evening, Mr Reddy promised that the next Congress Government would give honorarium to Pastors and Fathers on par with Pujarais of Temple and Imams/Maozan of mosques. "I've always supported the demand for granting SC status to Dalit Christians. Rahul Gandhi will be our next Prime Minister. Will speak to him regarding this and if required we will bring legislation to grant SC status for Dalit Christians," he promised.

Mr Reddy also promised that all Pastors and Fathers would be given Health and Accidental Insurance of Rs 5 lakh, double bed room houses or financial assistance to construct their own house and their children would be entitle for free education. He said the all Churches, along with other places of worship, would be free power supply. He also promised to introduce a better system for release of funds for construction and repairs of Churches.
The TPCC chief reminded that Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao had laid the foundation stone for a Christian Bhavan with much fanfare. But the occasion only proved to be a photo session for KCR and KCR insulted the entire Christian community by not taking up the works. He promised that the next Congress Government would construct a Christian Bhavan within one year after formation of government.
