    Malankara orthodox church, Catholicose, Malankra Metropolitan must be two persron handles instead of One Holiness.Cannoonikam, Kaushikam, only belongs the power of Catholicose.But all other admin matters belongs to Malankara Metran. Mr. George Joseph deserve this positions.

  3. Dr. George Joseph is most deserving to be re elected as Secretary,as his earlier term as secretary was exemplary.

    I hope he will pay more attention to bring together all St.Thomas Christians and unite them in fields were there are no dispute .

  4. It is so sad to note that most of these so called ‘honorary service personnel’ are quite reluctant to relinquish their posts even after completing their term, prompting the oridinary people to suspect their intentions.

    In this case, Dr. George Joseph served Malankara Sabha for 5 years and should have been more than willing to give up his position to another candidate by not contesting again.

    The question is, what Malankara Sabha gains fm all these? What more surprises the same team have for us for the next 5 years?

  5. Congratulations Dr. George Joseph!
