While TDP Chief and ex-CM of Andhra Pradesh (AP) Chandra Babu Naidu (CBN) announced his decision to hold a 10-day Dharma Parikrakshana Yatra to ‘safeguard Hindu Dharma’, it turns out that two TDP MLAs who served as ministers in his government and had fought elections using SC (Scheduled Castes) certificates from reserved constituencies are Christian converts.
TDP Anglo Indian Ex-MLA Philip Tochar spilled the beans. Nakka Anand Babu, Varla Ramaiah (spokesperson in above video) who contested using SC certificate are actually Christians. No wonder CBN took U turn so quickly. pic.twitter.com/NtrH9Ss533

Spilling the beans TDP’s ex-MLA Phillip Tochar said that Christians in TDP (Telugu Desam Party) are angry with CBN due to his Yatra announcement. He also added that Christians are going to leave TDP and this includes converted Christians as well. In the above video Tochar says:
Chandrababu Naidu’s mental faculties have dimmed a little bit. He must have declared in frustration. Every year during the new year, Bishop prays for him at CSI church. Carols were sung in his house. He even read the Bible and felt happy that God has given him such an opportunity. But I never expected him to talk like this.
When the anchor specifically asked Tochar “TDP has a lot of people from other religions. Will they also resign like you?” The ex-TDP MLA said that Christians would 100 % come out. He also added that in AP, the Christian numbers are high which includes both converts and traditional Christians.
It was then that Tochar spelled out in no uncertain terms regarding two TDP MLAs having fought on SC reservation seats but were following Christianity in reality. Tochar said Nakka Anand Babu contested from SC reserved seat but is a Christian by faith. Similarly Varla Ramiah also.
So while CBN accused CM Jagan Reddy to be a betrayer of Hindus, it turns out that there are several crypto-Christians in TDP as well. No wonder the TDP spokesperson assured support to Christian evangelists and said that if any evangelists faced any issues they could approach the party. The speaker can also be heard saying that they would be at the forefront to fight off those who try to create trouble for the evangelists.
AP and Telangana, in particular, have been faced with crypto-Christianity and several popular people have been found guilty of the same including AP’s home minister Mekathoti Sucharita who used the Hindu SC caste certificate to fight elections from a reserved constituency.
Hindupost had earlier reported how Christian converts were cornering state benefits using Hindu caste certificates in Andhra. LRPF (Legal Rights Protection Forum) has brought out the ground realities in their letter to the National Commission for Scheduled Castes (NCSC) highlighting the massive misuse of state machinery and funds by the ruling YSRCP (YSR Congress Party) led by Jagan Mohan Reddy.
While the focus has been on Jagan Reddy, it now emerges that CBN’s TDP also has several crypto-Christians thereby proving YSRCP MP Raghu Ramkrishna Raju right. In one of the TV debates, Raju had said “although officially Christians in the Telugu speaking states are reported as around 2.5%, in reality, Christians are 25% of the total population”.
Christian evangelists are wreaking havoc on the ground across the country and they’ve found a useful tool in crypto-Christianity. Many Christian converts are misusing Hindu caste status to corner benefits reserved for poor Hindus. This problem is not limited to Andhra and Telangana alone where it is extremely rampant but all over the country as was evident from BJP MP Mahavir Bhagora’s case.
Even as CBN attempts to revive his career using the Hindu plank the fact remains that most political parties including his own TDP seem to be harboring crypto-Christians. If CBN is serious about saving Hindu Dharma then he must first order crypto-Christians in TDP to come clean and place the reality before the public.
