Thiruvananthapuram: The Delhi Lieutenant Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena visiting various church heads in Kerala just ahead of the Lok Sabha elections has raised many eyebrows.

Saxena visited major archbishop of the prominent Syro-Malabar church in Kochi on Wednesday. He was also learnt to have visited major archbishop emeritus of the church George Allencherry, Malankara Syrian Knanaya archdiocese and Believers Eastern church. He may also visit some church heads in Thiruvananthapuram on Thursday.

Even as sources associated with the churches denied any connection of the Lieutenant Governor's visit with the Lok Sabha polls, the timing of his visit could trigger allegations in this regard.

Only the Believers Eastern church had made their political stand open by extending support to BJP Pathanamthitta candidate Anil K Antony, who is the son of Congress senior leader A K Antony. The church had earlier faced probe by Enforcement Directorate and Income Tax and huge amounts were reportedly seized.

Even as other churches did not make any direct statements on their support to any political parties, prominent Christian bishops had recently expressed concerns over CAA as well as attacks on Christians in various parts of the country.
