Mangalore: 

The Janata Dal- secular (JD-S) on Saturday said it would set up a separate development corporation for Christians in Karnataka if the party came to power in the ensuing assembly elections in the state.

"We have held discussion with various Christian leaders and met Archbishop Bernard Moras to discuss the necessity to set up Karnataka Christian Minority Development Corporation,” said JD(S) state president H. D. Kumaraswamy on Saturday.

He said that the objective of setting up a separate corporation will be the economic empowerment of the community.

“It will be a reality if the JD(S) is elected to power," Kumaraswamy said at a convention organized by the Christian minority cell of the party.

The assembly elections in the state are due in May next year.

Kumaraswamy said that peace and co-existence is the mantra to preserve harmony in the society.

"Christian community has the patience and tolerance. It was displayed several times when they were attacked in the coastal districts,” he said.
