Hyderabad: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister K.Rosaiah yesterday said that the state government had launched several welfare schemes for the minority christians for their betterment in the state.


Addressing a gathering in connection with Christmas celebrations organised by the 31st United Christmas Celebrations Committee-2009 here on Friday, he said the government was providing financial assistances for the construction of churches in rural areas in the state.


The government was also providing financial assistances for organising mass marriages for the Christians and also for the pilgrims who desire to go to Jerusalem on par with the Haj pilgrims.


He said the government had established the Christian Finance Development Corporation last year to take up the developmental activities for the Christians in the state.


The State government had also passed a resolution in the state Assembly in August 2009 to treat the Dalit Christians on par with the Scheduled Castes to provide assistances and sent it to the Union Government for consideration.


Extending his greetings on the occasion of Christmas, he said Christmas was symbol of peace, love and brotherhood. He lauded the services of Christian missionaries in the field of health and education.


He said the Missionary convents were the best in the country in as they serve the people with commitment. Rev. Marampudi Joji Archbishop of Hyderabad Diocese urged the Chief Minister to provide financial assistance to construct the churches in rural areas and also providing burial grounds.


He said the educational institutions which were running by the churches in the state were facing heavy financial problems as the government stopped giving financial aids to these institutions.


Andhra Pradesh State Transport commissioner and Chairman of the United Christmas celebrations committee J.Raymond Peter said the celebrations committee was organising the programme for the last 31 years in the Greater Hyderabad.
