Gulbarga: The president of the Minority Morcha of the BJP, Derrick M.B. Fullinfaw, MLA, appealed to minority communities in the State to support BJP candidates in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Mr. Fullinfaw told presspersons here on Monday that for the first time in the country a State Government had earmarked a sum of Rs. 167 crore in the State budget for various schemes for the benefit of the minorities in the State. “This amount is the highest in the country and no other State has allocated so much money for the welfare of the minority communities,” Mr. Fullinfaw claimed. However, the BJP Minority Morcha president had no answer to a query on the State Government’s failure to curb anti-Christian violence.
