Why Christian BJP MLAs silent, asks Cong

PTI, PANAJI | 09 February 2015 21:09 IST

Goa Congress on Monday condemned the recent police action in Delhi against Christians who took to streets over attacks on churches, and questioned the silence of state BJP MLAs from the minority community over the issue.

"The police action against the peaceful protesters is condemnable. This clearly indicates the communal psyche of the (Narendra) Modi-led government. The safety of minorities is again in question under the current rule," Goa Congress unit spokesman Sunil Kawthankar told reporters here.

Questioning the silence by Goa's Christian BJP MLAs over the issue, Kawthankar said, "Why are those MLAs supporting BJP or who have got elected on the party ticket not questioning the conduct of their own party in the national capital?"


Hundreds of Christians had staged a major protest in Delhi on February 5, accusing the government of inaction over recent attacks on churches in the national capital and wondered why Prime Minister Narendra Modi was silent on the issue.

Police had later detained over 200 protesters in central Delhi when they tried to march towards the residence of Home Minister Rajnath Singh in a high security area.

Perhaps all BJP Christian MLA`s led by Dy. CM Francisco D`Souza, have become Hindu -Christians.!!

I am never sure if Politicians/Political Criminals are guided by Moral principles and ethics.

Perhaps Goan Christian MLA`s will only complain, about the lack of backhanders and money they have made during their term in office.

Goan Chistian BJP MLA`s are at Church on Sunday Mornings as a token. During the rest of the week ,they are at vice densand parlours and in negotiations with Devils.

Christian Mlas of Goa BJP perhaps know that in last year there were 265 cases of theft in hindu temples in Delhi alone. Secondly they are not like Congress Hindu politicians who for the sake of filling their empty bellies would go to any extent. They are not "bekaar" and "lachar" people like Hindu Congress leaders. They can definitely definitely feed themselves when out of power. But for a Hindu Congress leadres it will be death due to starvation when out of power.
