Hi Mountain Girl!
We have to be very, very careful with the wording of the answer choices in any reading comprehension passage. Most of the questions are in the form of Must Be True, which means if there is even a small part of the answer choice that is false or not explicitly stated, it is not the correct answer. Answer choice (D), as you've identified, contains a piece of information that we cannot say with certainty - we simply don't know if they were criticized by CORE, and therefore, we cannot choose this answer.
The support for answer choice (A) can be found towards the end of the passage, specifically in lines 60-62. Because the ministers were able to maintain their moderate political ties, the campaign didn't really signal a major change in their political and social goals. While the ministers were initially afraid that their participation in the campaign would change their position in the community as moderate political leaders, in the end, the campaign did not significantly change their general goals. Hope that clarifies this one!
