Share

The election and removal of Togadia from the position of VHP global president reportedly took place due to RSS's discomfort with Togadia using the banner of the organisation to accuse Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government of betraying the Hindutva cause. "And yet, our prime minister has embarked on a foreign tour", Togadia told reporters. He attacked Mr. Modi for his five-day visit to Sweden and the United Kingdom starting on Monday.

In an apparent show of strength, Togadia, a former global working president of the VHP, would sit on indefinite fast.

Togadia, who returned to Ahmedabad last night, met his supporters and top VHP functionaries in Gujarat today to finalise his plans for the fast at the state VHP headquarters.

"The entire Gujarat unit of the VHP is behind Togadia. Hindus first is the mission of my life and from Tuesday, I will go on an indefinite fast in Ahmedabad for fulfilling the longstanding demands of Hindus", he said.

"Through this fast, Mr. Togadia just wants to remind the BJP that building Ram Temple or abolition of Article 370 was in the party's manifesto. VHP or Togadia are not demanding anything new", he added. "Now the time has come to begin the construction", said Togadia who has invited the newly appointed chief of VHP to either join him in the fast or start pressurising on Government to pass the Bill in the parliament.

As per reports, Togadia's new organisation is going to be named "Hindu Hi Aage" which translates into Hindus at the forefront.

On Sunday Togadia had said that in 2014 elections, VHP offered full support to Modi, but after becoming prime minister, Modi termed gau-rakshaks as 'gundas' (goons).

Commenting on government's step to withdrawn cases against stone pelters in Kashmir, Togadia said he was shocked.
