GO for Christian Bhavan issued

The Government of Telangana on Friday issued GO Rt. No. 54, sanctioning Rs. 10 crore towards construction of a Christian Bhavan in Greater Hyderabad following a nod to this effect from the Cabinet.

The Order said it was issued following representation from the community considering their sizeable number in the twin cities. Accordingly, the Christian Bhavan will meet the community’s social needs besides being the hub of all activities, including youth welfare training, conduct of marriages and other socio-cultural functions like celebrating festivals.

The National Congress of Indian Christians (NCIC) and Christians of all denominations expressed happiness over the assurance given by the Telangana Chief Minister, K. Chandrasekhar Rao, in building a Christian Bhavan and the announcement of January 1 (New Year Day) as a public holiday.

In a press release, NCIC president C.A. Daniel Adams said while the Christian community had always supported the Congress, they were also ignored. Because the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) was concerned about the community, Christians would support the TRS unconditionally.
