Gandhinagar: Dr Pravin Togadia, former global working president of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) will go on indefinite fast from April 17 at RTO Ahmedabad. The former Parishad chief had resigned after his close aide, Raghav Reddy, had lost VHP presidential election to retired justice V S Kokje. Togadia has held the position since December 2011, when he was nominated by his loyalist Reddy, who took over as president the same month.
Kokje proposed names for the new central executive team, which were approved the Board of Trustees, according to a VHP statement. "The VHP cadre as well as Hindu saints will join Togadia in his fast to save the VHP", Shah said. I was in it for 32 years. He emphasised his "commitment" to build a Ram temple in Ayodhya, and the imposition of a Uniform Civil Code in the country.
A day after quitting the Vishwa Hindu Parishad in wake of his nominee losing an organisational poll, firebrand leader Pravin Togadia today launched a vicious attack against the Modi government at the Centre.
"This blatant anti-Narendra Modi and anti-BJP stance is not the style of the sangh now". Following the incident, he was admitted to hospital, where among his visitors were Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) chief Hardik Patel and Congress leader Arjun Modhwadia.
"Finally and inevitably, the balance went in favour of Prime Minister Modi and it was decided that an attempt to recapture the VHP would be attempted", said a senior source.
