It has been brought to our attention that pictures of His Eminence, Oswald Cardinal Gracias meeting the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, and a video of a priest giving his personal testimony of help rendered by a particular political party are being circulated by individuals, which may be used to direct people to vote for a particular candidate.
