    A new political party called the Indian Christian Secular Party is being launched in Hyderabad. Its president will be M. Udaia Kumar, a well known figure in microfinance from the region. He is Founder and Managing Director of SHARE Microfin Limited.

    "By getting into policy matters, one hopes to be able to influence and impact development positively," he says.

    What happens to the microfinance entities, SHARE and Asmitha, with which he is associated? "They are run by professionals," he says.

    Kumar holds a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) as well as training in development studies at Selly Oak College, University of Birmingham, UK. He studied microfinance at the Economics Institute Boulder, University of Colorado.

    The development came as a surprise to many of his peers in the industry. Says the founder of another microfinance entity, who has known him for years, but who prefers anonymity: "For the industry this will be one more red flag. At a time like this when the microfinance sector is going through its toughest period, people do not expect to see you either getting lot of money or seeking access to power."

    Many in the microfinance industry cite the fate of Muhammad Yunus, Nobel Laureate and father of the Gremeen model of microfinance in Bangladesh.

    Yunus, some feel, started having many problems with the Bangladesh government after he announced a few years ago that he would like to launch a political party.

    "He never did, but the rulers remember these things," said a microfinance expert who knows Udaia Kumar. For the moment, Indian politics needs fresh blood and perhaps this move only supports that.

    Still, this is christians stooping to new lows. I was very saddened when I heard this news a few days back. To top it all, the founder of this party is the owner of a micro finance company which is also against the very values of the Bible. :facepalm:

    It is only the beginning, Christians already reached significant size of AP population due to rapid conversions. They need more representation in politics, they need to move closer to their ultimate goal. YS Jagan is a good representative of Xtians but he care more about money than religion.
