State Congress unit under fire as Telangana Congress minority cell makes a host of demands for ‘Christians’

Congress and its allies are long known for the minority appeasement stunts they try pulling off before every election.

A list compiled by the Telangana State Congress Committee (Minority Departments), coming just a few days before the crucial assembly elections, seeking a host of demands for Christians, has left the State Congress unit under fire.

The list reportedly submitted on October 9, which comes at a time when Rahul and Sonia are both set to campaign in the state, is being dubbed as the Congress ‘Christian manifesto’.

The Telangana State Congress Committee (Minority Departments) is seeking a host of SOPs for the Christian community which includes demands for protection for Christian Bishops, funds, subsidy for Christian pilgrimage, houses for Christian journalists and seats allotted in Lok Sabha, Rajya Sabha and Assembly for Christians.

As per reports, Congress Telangana has cleared that it’s just a letter from the minority cell head, recommending the 10 points as a proposal. Nothing, the source said, has been accepted till now.

Congress and its allies are long known for the minority appeasement stunts they try pulling off before every election. In March ahead of Karnataka elections, a document allegedly belonging to the Directorate of Minorities of Karnataka recommending media kits for minority journalists and two pages of government advertisements (per month) for newspapers owned by minorities has emerged in public domain, giving an altogether a new dimension to their mollification stunt.

However, it will be interesting to see, whether Telangana State Congress, this time, would buckle under the demands of their own minority cell or adopt a different course of action.

After Telangana Chief Minister KC Rao dissolved the Assembly, the state also went in for early election. Telangana is set to vote on 7th December and the counting will take place on 11th December along with rest of the four states: Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Mizoram and Chhattisgarh.
