BRING DOWN MODI;church calls for prayer campaign to bring down government in 2019

NEW DELHI: In a letter written to all parish priests in the capital, the Archbishop of Delhi, Anil Couto, asked for a prayer campaign to be launched and also appealed for fasting on Fridays ahead of the 2019 general elections.

Citing the “turbulent political atmosphere which poses a threat to the democratic principles enshrined in the Constitution and the secular fabric of our nation”, the letter says, “It is our hallowed practice to pray for our country and its political leaders all the time but all the more so when we approach the general elections.” “As we look forward towards 2019 when we will have new government let us begin a prayer campaign for our country,” states the letter.

When contacted, the Archbishop’s secretary, Father Robinson Rodrigues told TOI such prayer campaigns took place before every general election, but the exercise was being politicised this time.




The call for prayer for peace and free and fair elections happens before every election. It happened in 2014 and before that too.
Only this time a political colour is being deliberately given to the whole exercise by some people,” Father Rodrigues said.
