First Water Metro in India, Church Leaders' Meeting: Boost for BJP, Information on PM Modi's Trip to Kerala, Traffic Curbs
PM Modi's visit to Kerala: PM Modi is scheduled to meet with a number of church leaders in Kochi. This would likely help the BJP reach out to the state's Christian population in advance of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
Due of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's upcoming two-day visit to the state, the Kerala Police has imposed traffic restrictions in Kochi for the upcoming two days. The tour will be remembered for the laying of the cornerstone for several significant development projects, a road show, a youth conclave, and interactions with bishops from different churches.
Ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, PM Modi is anticipated to meet with a number of church leaders in Kochi. This would likely boost the BJP's outreach to Kerala's Christian population.
According to a Times of India article citing BJP officials, the prime minister would meet with representatives from eight different Christian faiths. Cardinal George Alencherry, the leader of the Malankara Orthodox Church, and Major Archbishop of the Syro-Malabar Church Mar Thoma Mathews-III, Verapoly archbishop Joseph Kalathiparambil, Jacobite church metropolitan trustee Joseph Mor Gregorios, Knanaya church head Mar Mathew Moolakkatt, Knanaya metropolitan Kuriakose Mor Severios, and Chaldean Syrian church head Mar Awgin Kuriakose are all anticipated to speak with the PM.
Furthermore, the newspaper cited individuals who said that they had not yet received the final list of church delegates. "Many religious officials have said they would like to meet the PM. The Prime Minister's Office has received the list of these leaders from us. They are to take part in RT-PCR testing and be ready for the conference, per our request. However, the PMO would be responsible for completing the list, according to a BJP leader.
