Letter to Collector by National Christian Council (Andhra Pradesh)
Date: 18th April 2019
Of West Godavari District
Eluru – 534001
Greetings from the Christian Community of the West Godavari District. We have learnt that the Government has scheduled to conduct:
1. Screening test for Panchayat Raj Secretary Grade IV post &
2. SI Entrance Examination
on 21/04/2019 i.e., on the Resurrection Festival Sunday [Easter].
Due to the above, many Christian Institutions are being forced to offer their establishments to conduct the above mentioned examinations.
It seems that the Christians in the Government service are also being given official duties for this purpose without allowing them to go for prayers and celebrate this festival.
As you are aware Christians have few festivals in the year and Resurrection Sunday as a commemorative day of Jesus raising out of the dead is very important for us to pray and to celebrate.
We request your good office to urgently intimate the concerned our strong sentiment about this and arrange to postpone these and let the Christian community and the Christian members in government service celebrate this important festival.
Thanking you Sincerely Yours
Rev P.Isaac Brenham W.G.Dt., Secretary
Rev O.Manoj Bob W.G.Dt. President
Rev V.Manikyala Rao W.G.Dt., Hon.President
