Togadia's run of VHP is over

VS Kokje

The election was necessitated after the organisations members failed to reach a consensus on a new worldwide president.

The decision after Togadia's aide Raghav Reddy was defeated by retired justice and former Himachal Pradesh governor VS Kokje in polling for the post of global president of the VHP. As many as 192 votes were cast in the election, out of which Mr. Kokje got 131 votes and 60 went to Mr Reddy.

Former working president Pravin Togadia, who batted for Redyy, however, alleged irregularities in the exercise. I am no longer with the VHP but I will continue to fight for the Hindus, farmers, youths and workers.

He announced that he will fast in Ahmedabad from Tuesday to demand a law for the construction of a Ram temple, a common civil code and cow protection rules.

An election was necessitated for the first time in over half a century, as there was no agreement over the candidate. The newly-elected President of VHP has nominated Alok Kumar as the replacement of Togadia.

Togadia also alleged that there was an attempt to rig the elections. The outcomes of the result will have a bearing on the functioning of the VHP, which includes the fate of Togadia.

The President polls were conducted in the organisation after 52 years. A section of the saffron group has been upset at the VHP over Togadia's comments critical of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He did not elaborate but claimed "a big conspiracy".

"Why should there be an agitation just to grab Hindu votes again and then throw Hindus in dustbins after winning the election?"

Reacting to Mr. Reddy's defeat, Mr. Togadia, the stormy petrel of the Sangh Parivar, said he was ready to accept "this small defeat" for a "bigger battle for Hindu rights".
