New Delhi: Monsignor Joseph Chinnayyan, deputy secretary general of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India, on July 5 called on federal Home Minister Rajnath Singh, who sprained his left ankle three weeks ago.
The Church officials visited Singh at his residence and offered prayers for his speedy recovery.
Monsignor Chinnayyan said he recalled with gratitude the minister’s “unique gesture of goodwill” shown the bishops’ conference when he accepted to be the chief guest for the 2015 Christmas celebrations at the CBCI Centre. The minister was the chief guest for the celebration of Mother Teresa’s canonization held at Vigyan Bhavan in New Delhi in August, 2016.
The priest, who is also the director of the CBCI Centre, said the minister had enquired if churches in the capital faced any problem as happened a few years ago.
“The government continues to provide security to all churches in the capital,” Monsignor Chinnayyan told Matters India.
