A body representing prominent churches in the southern Indian State of Telangana has urged the state government to build a church along with a temple and a mosque in the new secretariat.
The Federation of Telugu Churches, a body of churches in the state, also reminded their Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao about a regular prayer previously conducted in the old secretariat building.
“Christian workshops were conducted every Wednesday during the lunch break,” in the old secretariat, according to Father Anthoniraj Thumma, executive secretary of the Federation.
Father Thumma said in a press note on July 13 that “this time we have requested a different church building, which the mosque and temple had. “On previous occasions, we have requested the government for the allotment of land in the secretariat. This is a long-pending request.”
