It also disputed Togadia's claim that he had fallen unconscious, suggesting the entire episode was staged.

A day after he went "missing" and was found in an unconscious state, Vishwa Hindu Parishad global working president Pravin Togadia moved to tears in front of the cameras claiming that efforts are on to silence his voice.

The VHP had claimed that Togadia was detained by the Rajasthan police in connection with a case.

After meeting Togadia, Modhwadia demanded an independent inquiry into Togadia's allegation.

"I contacted lawyers of Rajasthan and told them to get the arrest warrant cancelled". Again, we do not know who those people were.

Togadia addressed a 30-minute press conference Tuesday sitting in a wheel chair while an aide carried a saline drip.


We all know what kind of conspiracies are being hatched by Narendra Modi and Amit Shah. Ahmedabad Crime Branch has said that the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader on Monday had reached house of Ghanshyam Charandas, a Thaltej resident, after leaving the organisation's office. "Someone told me the plan was being made to kill me in an encounter", News 24 quoted the firebrand VHP leader as saying. Meanwhile, the VHP supporters alleged police for detaining Pravin Togadia. Togadia said he was on his way to the airport when he fell unconscious near Kotarpur. How and why are Rajasthan and Gujarat Police forces following such orders?

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

The Congress Party too has extended its support to Togadia. And if such things can happen with him, we can only imagine the situation of common people. By the late evening protests had erupted across the state after VHP members took to the streets.

VHP leader Dr Pravin Togadia has gone "missing" and Ahmedabad police have formed four teams to locate his whereabouts, said Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Ahmedabad J.K. Bhatt, while denying that he has not been arrested either by Gujarat or Rajasthan police as was being speculated by VHP workers and followers. However, hours later, he was found lying unconscious in Ahmedabad. On Tuesday morning, the VHP leader alleged that attempts were being made to silence his voice and he asked the police not to act under political pressure.

Vishwanath Kulkarni, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) activist said, "If Togadia has accused BJP of encountering him then it is really unfortunate and unjustified".
