"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.

He promised that the next Congress Government would construct a Christian Bhavan within one year after formation of government.
