Cardinal's official on the election results

May 18, 2014

Heartiest congratulations to BJP and the NDA on the resounding victory in the General Elections. The people of India have given a clear call to the NDA led by the BJP to lead the country in the coming years. 

We are happy as we have a stable and a strong government at the Centre which can give effective leadership.

 We assure the Government and its leaders of our prayers. May God bless them  with wisdom, courage and selflessness to work for all our people especially the poor, the marginalized, the minorities and the weaker sections of society.

 The Church will always continue to work for the welfare of our people.

  + Oswald Cardinal Gracias 
    Archbishop of Bombay
    President, CCBI & FABC
