Bangalore, Jan 22 : Controversial American evangelist Benny Hinn conducted his prayer meeting for the second day here today, even as the BJP continued to stage protests against the pastor’s programme.

Claiming himself to be a “messenger” of Jesus Christ, Hinn said he has come to India to speak about the “healer and deliverer” (Jesus Christ). “Glory of Lord is about to rise in India”, he commented.

In front of a large gathering at the “Festival of Blessings: Pray for India” programme, he said “India is a nation hungry for God”.

Pointing to some political leaders attending the event, Hinn said “these leaders have hunger for God. They are seeking a touch from heaven”.

Hinn also sought to strike a chord with Indians, urging the ceremony to be begun with India’s national song. “Tomorrow (the final day of his prayer meeting), I want the Indian flags to flutter on the stage”, he added. “India is ready for the greatest blessings in its history”, he said.

Former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda, Deputy Chairman of Rajya Sabha K Rehman Khan, Union Minister of State for Surface Transport, Highways and Shipping K H Muniyappa,Congress leader Margaret Alva and Karnataka Minister P G R Sindhia were among those who attended the congregation at Jakkur airfield.

Meanwhile, the BJP staged a day-night dharna in front of the Mahatma Gandhi statue here in protest against Hinn’s programme and also charged the government with giving it an “official tag”. It decried Chief Minister N Dharam Singh’s participation in the programme yesterday. The party termed the event as one aimed at “converting people into Christianity”.
