The rally passed through Benz Circle, Pinnamaneni Polyclinic Road and culminated into a meeting near Siddhartha College junction in Moghalrajpuram.

Bishop Fr T Raja Rao, along with other members cleansed the statue of Mother Teresa with milk and put a garland. Speaking on the occasion, Raja Rao strongly condemned the remarks made by Paripoornananda Swamy against Mother Teresa in an interview with a Telugu channel. The Christian community stressed that had it not been Mother Teresa, the condition of untouchables would have remained the same even today. “At least now, the Swamy should tender an open apology to the Christian community,” demanded the bishop.
