Togadia targets Modi after VHP Ouster, says disenchantment began after 2002

TIL Desk/National/Ahmedabad/ Firebrand leader Pravin Togadia launched a vicious attack against the Narendra Modi government at the Centre on Sunday, a day after he was forced out of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad in wake of his nominee losing an organisational poll.

Togadia, who has decided to undertake an indefinite fast from Tuesday, said his “disenchantment” with Prime Minister Narendra Modi began right after the 2002 post-Godhra riots.

“I am not in the VHP anymore…. I will continue to work for the welfare of Hindus. From Tuesday, I will go on an indefinite fast in Ahmedabad for fulfilling the longstanding demands of the Hindus,” he had said ON Saturday after former Himachal Pradesh governor V S Kokje defeated his nominee Raghav Reddy in an election in Gurgaon for the post of VHP International president.

Togadia, who returned to Ahmedabad on Saturday night, met his supporters and top VHP functionaries in Gujarat on Sunday to finalise his plans for the fast at the state VHP headquarters. “I got disenchanted with this government in the last four years. The disenchantment, in fact, had started slowly after the 2002 events in Gujarat,” he said.
