There is nothing great done by C.M. He delayed it for long because it was a catholic community demand. if it was by some other community like Muslims or Dalits he woud have done long ago. He has not done any favour. Nothing to hail. Secondly the false cases against the christians by the BSY govt is yet to be withdarn if so why delay? The government should have done it immediately when it assumed power as they had promised. for christiansnment is very slow with regard to Christians which I do not appreciate.
