Attempt to suppress my voice, says Togadia a day after disappearance

Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Pravin Togadia found unconscious hours after outfit said he was missing

Patidar leader Hardik Patel and former IPS officer DG Vanzara met Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) worldwide working president Pravin Togadia in hospital today.

Togadia claimed that since he had raised his voice in support of the Hindu community hence attempts were being made to silence him.

"Togadia was not at all arrested by our team".

"I don't fear death or police encounter, but at the same time, I needed to protect myself".

Hardline-Hindutva leader Pravin Togadia, who is facing arrest in the old case, alleged that a plan was being hatched to kill him. "We ask the Gujarat Police to tell us where he is if he has not been arrested". "On the way, I called up Rajasthan CM and Home minister and they said that no order was passed to Rajasthan police for my arrest".

Earlier on Monday, Togadia, who was traced to Chandramani Hospital in Shahibuag area here, was detected with low blood sugar. After the news spread, a number of VHP leaders and workers reached the hospital, to enquire about the VHP chief. The VHP leader, who will surrender in court after seeking doctor's permission said, "I will reveal the names of people who are planning to kill me in an encounter at the right time". Despite making such serious allegations, Togadia went on to say, "I have no complaints against the Gujarat Police, also I have no complaints against the Rajasthan Police". "Police will conduct a detailed probe into the incident", said Gujarat VHP general secretary Ranchhod Bharwad.

When AV spoke to Swami Dharmgyananand Saraswati (Gyan Swami), Official Spokesperson of Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha, he said that the harassment of Pravin Togadia is an assault on Hinduism and its followers; he also indicated that secular forces are responsible for it.

"Our worldwide working president Pravin Togadia is missing since 10 am today (Monday)".

Senior RSS leader M G Vaidya said today only VHP leader Pravin Togadia can reveal who was behind the alleged conspiracy to kill him.

"I have been raising my voice for Hindus". Why were the summons not made available to me despite my presence in Ahmedabad?

The VHP had yesterday claimed that Togadia was detained by Rajasthan police in connection with the case, but the latter denied this. The warrant, related to section 188 of the IPC, was issued by a sessions court in Gangapur. However, they have been loggerheads ever since Modi became the Chief Minister of Gujarat in 2002.
