New Delhi: Minority affairs minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Friday called on Bishop of Delhi Warris K. Masih at his residence here as part of the BJP’s “contact for support” campaign ahead of 2019 general elections and shared the achievements of Modi government in the last four years.

Mr Naqvi told reporters that he sought Masih’s blessings for development, peace and prosperity in the country, besides apprising him of the achievements of the government. He termed the response of the Christian leader as “positive”.

 

Mr Naqvi said the Modi government was committed to inclusive growth and would continue to work in that direction in future.

Bishop Waris Masih said the Christian community appreciates the work done, especially for minorities, by the Modi government in the last four years, and extended best wishes to the government for working towards “Sabka saath, sabka vikas” (together with all, development for all).

The Christian delegation gave various suggestions related to socio-economic and educational empowerment, including employment oriented skill development of the Christian community, a ministry official said.

The meeting came in the backdrop of controversies over letters by Delhi Archbishop Anil Coutos and Archbishop of Goa and Daman Father Filipe Neri Ferrao to Christians.
