Kottayam, Nov 13 (UNI) Elaborate arrangements are being made for the rally to be held here on November 16 under the auspices of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church in protest against the ''denial of justice'' and non-compliance of the Supreme Court verdict in Church cases by the state government.

Talking to mediapersons at Devalokam, Orthodox Church headquarters, Catholicos-designate Paulose Mar Milithios said one lakh members of the Church would take part in the rally.
