Betrayed by Congress, Dalit Christians should give a chance to BJP

published on April 3, 2014

New Delhi, April 3, 2014: The Christian organizations Poor Christian Liberation
Movements (PCLM) have alleged that the Congress led United Progressive Alliance
(UPA) government has been luring three crore oonverted Christians by promising
them to give the status of Scheduled Caste for the last two and half decades,
but the party has never been honest to its commitments.

PCLM President R.L Francis said, “The process of befooling Dalit Christian
started during the tenure of  former Prime Minister  P.V Narsimha Rao
in 1995 and this continued till date in the Manmohan Singh led UPA government.
They have completely turned blind eye to the problems of Dalit Christians. The
government has been only showing lollypop to the deprived sections of Christian

He further said, “Time has come for Dalit Christians to change its mindset and
opt for Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) at this decisive moment. The decision made
will have far reaching implications for the Christian society as history has
given them chance to rectify their error of supporting Congress and march in
the better future. Now, majority of Dalit Christians don’t want caste label on
them and their intention is to lead a respectful life in the society”.

Movement leader R.L. Francis said, “Dalit Christians should think that no
government or political party can take risk to provide reservation on the basis
of religion. Many Congress leaders supporting this argument of Church have now
changed their loyalties. They have stopped talking on the issue at all. This
demand of Church has stopped all doors for development of Dalit Christians.”

PCLM President R.L Francis said, “Church has ample resources after government
of India. Church and government should strive to provide partnership in private
and government sector in their ratio of their population.” Francis said the efforts
of the Indian Church authorities to put Dalit Christians yet again in the
Scheduled Caste list would promote casteism in Christianity. “It’s a
mockery of Jesus Christ’ sacrifice on the cross,” he said.

Francis urged them to “prepare and preserve documents of various
socio-economic losses and damages caused to the millions of Dalit Christians
because of the absolute neglect, lethargy and gross carelessness of the Church

Movement leader R.L. Francis said, “No society can move forward by supporting a
single party. Time has come for Dalit Christians to think about BJP as a strong
alternative. If BJP forms government, Dalit Christians can create pressure to
make strong policies for the welfare of Christian society paving way for
development of the society. It is clear that Congress is not going to form the
next government and trusting Congress has not yielded results so far. There is
no option but to give BJP a chance.”

    Dalit christians.
    Their only aim is to get reservation for dalit christians. Once it happens, all christians will become dalit christians and the poor dalits will be destroyed.

    BJP should not succumb to the pressure
    In my opinion, when large scale conversions are taking place, giving reservation to the Dalit Christians will further encourage conversions. For the sake of votes, BJP should not succumb to the demands of Dalit Christians. If BJP does it, then there is no difference between pseudo secular parties and BJP

    Throw this bloody Congress & AAP out
    Why this charade? Congress should merge with Muslim League since their goal are the same. Destruction of Hindustan. Congress has been the number 1 anti-Hindu party in India always pampering minorities for votes with absolutely no genuine care for them. They declare that Muslims have the first right to all the resources of poor Bharat. Their game is simple -divide & rule. They don’t care for the poorest of poor Hindus because they happen to be Hindus. They have destroyed my motherland & plundered it & made it into a real basket case & all looted money stored in Italians & other foreign banks. Robert Vadra is a multi-millionaire within a span of ten years by looting poor India of antique statues from various temples. The most crooked bunch are Sonia, Dogvijay, Sibal, Rahul, Vadra & other rear kissers. This is our last opportunity to salvage what is left of our country from the vultures by throwing these crooked bunch out.
