Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President Capt. N Uttam Kumar Reddy on Monday promised to bring ‘Jesus rule’ if the Congress were voted to power in the upcoming state assembly elections.

Addressing a meeting of All India Christian Federation at YMCA, Secunderabad on Monday evening, Uttam Kumar Reddy said that ‘Jesus willed Governance’ will come in Telangana only if Congress is voted to power by defeating both TRS and the BJP.

Reddy went on to claim that caretaker Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao of Telangana Rashtra Samiti and Prime Minister Narendra Modi has held a secret meeting in Delhi ahead of Telangana state elections. “Voting for Mr Rao is nothing but voting for Modi. This is the reason why Mr Rao rushed to Delhi,” said Uttam Kumar Reddy.

Mr Uttam Kumar Reddy said that the Congress will provide Scheduled Caste (SC) status to Dalit Christians and give importance to Christians, unlike Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He also promised to give free education to children of pastors, priests and Imams along with health and accidental insurance up to five lakhs.

Reddy further added that if Congress is voted to power in Telangana, they will give an honorarium to pastors and priests along with free houses and provide free electricity to the places of worship. The Christian Corporation will be provided with funds to the tune of hundreds of crores of rupees for their development, said Reddy.

He also promised of hostels, skill development centres for Christian students, loans for self-employment scheme, 3,000 monthly unemployment allowance, land for new churches. Addition to this, Reddy promised the All India Christian Federation of a CBI investigation into alleged encroachment of properties belonging to churches and also a judicial commission to study socio-economic status of the Christians.

A Christian Study Circle for students and subsidy for those going on pilgrimage to Jerusalem will be introduced after Congress coming to power in the state of Telangana, said Uttam Reddy. He said the next Congress government would strengthen the Christian Minorities Finance Corporation by giving adequate funds.

Meanwhile, Telangana BJP on Tuesday urged the State Election Commission to take action against TPCC chief Uttam Kumar Reddy for violating the Model code of conduct by using religious appeasement to garner votes in the upcoming elections. The BJP alleged that Congress was provoking the religious and regional sentiments by luring the Christian community.

Capt. N Uttam Kumar Reddy, a former IAF fighter pilot, is currently an MLA from Telangana and has also been elected thrice to the Andhra Pradesh state assembly. His wife Nalamada Padmavathi Reddy is also a Congress MLA from Telangana.
