The ICSP leaders said the election manifesto of the party stresses on providing religious freedom to all people especially Dalits, 50 per cent reservations to womenfolk in the statute making bodies, as well as bringing both elected people's representatives and officials under the purview of the Lok Pal. It also stresses on revoking Government Order 746 and 747 which "usurp" the rights of the Christian community. Later, Prabhu Kumar announced the new committee for the party's East Godavari district unit, with T Stephen Babu as the president, David Raju as the general secretary and Suvarta Raju as the treasurer.
