For the second day in succession, visiting BJP President Amit Shah on Saturday met leaders of Christian churches in Kerala.Amit Shah, who had met senior bishops of four different rites of Christians in Kochi on Friday, arrived met the head of the capital city-headquartered Syro Malankara Catholic Church.Waiting to receive him were its supreme head, Cardinal Moran Mar Baselios Cleemis Catholicos, as well as Thiruvananthapuram Latin diocese's head Archbishop M. Susaipakiam.Amit Shah is on a three day visit to the state as part of his all India tour of visiting various states to mark the BJP-led NDA government celebrating its third year in office.Like after the meetings on Friday, the bishops on Saturday said there was nothing political in the visit of the Bharatiya Janata party President."Not a word of politics was spoken in the meeting," said the Cardinal."Our attitude towards political parties is quite well known as we have the policy of entertaining all and we always appreciate anyone if they do good, irrespective of their politics. This was a meeting with no politics discussed," said the Archbishop.Meanwhile, Amit Shah in his meeting with the party leadership on Friday and Saturday asked to them to see that there is a healthy relationship with the Christian community as this is most essential for the party to make further inroads in Kerala.However reacting to the meeting, senior Communist Party of India-Marxist leader and former Rajya Sabha member K.N.Balagopal said these are all nothing but the politics of appeasing tactics being wisely employed by the BJP leadership to woo the Christians.
