Why the church has no faith in Modi

The two recent missives by the Christian clergy have made three points — that the Constitution of India is under a serious threat; pluralistic ethos are in danger; and minorities, Adivasis and Dalits are being persecuted. The statements by the two Bishops do not refer to anyone by name. However, shorn of verbose, it is a call to the "faithful" to actively work for the defeat of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the 2019 general elections. It is nothing but politics by subterfuge.
