KOCHI: Making its stand on party politics clear, the Catholic Church has come out with a pastoral letter which asks the followers to consider political ideology of the candidate before casting their votes in the upcoming civic polls.
The letter, read out at all the parishes under it, asks the laity to ensure active involvement by exercising their franchise and making their presence felt in the fray.
The circular warns the faithful of prominent Christian personalities with the backing of parties with atheist ideology being passed off as independents. After winning in elections, such candidates would be controlled by the parties which field them, it says. It also briefs the importance of elections to the local bodies which have so much power after the enactment of Panchayathi Raj Act.
The circular titled ‘KCBC’s exhorting the voters in Kerala, in view of the elections to the Local Self-Governments’ points out the importance of empowering women as well.
Able and educated women should enter the politics, it says.
