Mar Thoma Bishop seeks houses for allKerala, November 04, 2013: Metropolitan, Philipose Mar Chrysostum of the Mar Thoma Church has called upon Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy to initiative project to provide houses for the houseless in the state.

Chandy was on a visit to the bishop’s House on the banks of the Pampa at Maramon on Sunday. Continuing the “Zero Landless” project, aimed at providing land to all landless people, the government should launch another scheme aimed at making Kerala a “zero houseless” state, Mar Chrysostum said.

The Metropolitan said financial assistance should be delivered to the houseless through local self-government institutions, avoiding middlemen.

The chief minister released a tele-serial on the Metropolitan, Mar Chrysostum Speaking, by Mathew Koshy Punnackadu, former Principal of Bishop Moore College, Mavelikara.

He said the senior bishop’s criticism laced with humor had a strengthening effect on society and people seldom questioned it.

Joseph Mar Barnabas Metropolitan; P.T. Thomas, Mar Thoma Church secretary; Peelipose Thomas, former Planning Board member; Royce Mallasserry, Principal, St Thomas College, Kozhencherry; and Prof. Punnackadu were present.
