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. For the welfare of Hindus, I left my home and my lucrative medical practice.
Togadia said that he would sit on the fast in Ahmedabad from Tuesday with demands like legislation for construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya, common civil code, cow protection, 1.5% of comprehensive cost of MSP to farmers for all crops and jobs to Hindu youths. "To remind the BJP of its own promises, Togadia will begin his indefinite fast from tomorrow", Shah said. I was in it for 32 years.
Speaking to newsmen, he claimed that many Hindus were killed in police firing during Gujarat riots.
Commenting on government's step to withdrawn cases against stone pelters in Kashmir, Togadia said he was shocked. "I was shocked as this government has helped Pakistan-supporters", he went on to say.
After the election, Togadia said they would continue to be the voice of Hindus.More news: Drake confirms new album Scorpion will be released in June 2018

Togadia had informally been the leader of the VHP since 2003 and was formally appointed to the post in 2011.
Kumar replaced Togadia as the VHP working president after the latter quit on Saturday.
Modi and Togadia, both of whom hail from Gujarat and started out as Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh volunteers, drifted apart in the last decade with Modi's rise.
Former working president Pravin Togadia, who batted for Redyy, however, alleged irregularities in the exercise.
The state spokesperson of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, meanwhile, came out in Togadia's support, claiming that the entire Gujarat unit was behind the firebrand leader. He also had a meeting with Patel quota agitation leader Hardik Patel, who had campaigned against the BJP.
