Pravin Togadia, VHP (Vishwa Hindu Parishad) President was in the hospital for treatment, when he went missing for hours in Ahmedabad. He was suffering from hypoglycemia, which was under treatment in the hospital.
According to the media reports, he was being searched by the Rajasthan police in a 10-year-old murder case. Rajasthan police had come to arrest him and when they did not find him in his home, they went back despite having a non-bailable arrest warrant issued against him.
He was found in VHP headquarters in the Ahmedabad, where he was again brought to the hospital according to the hospital doctors, who believe that he was in an unconscious stage when he was brought here. Since then protest has erupted in the city by workers of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad demanding the investigation in the matter.
They believe that this was a mastermind plan by the BJP to arrest him with the help of Rajasthan government in the old case since in recent time he has been very vocal about the central government policies.
Once regarded as a powerful leader, he seems to have lost the strength, since he began speaking against the party only.The police had said that they will look into the matter if the workers demand there is a conspiracy to implicate him on false charges.
What remains to be seen is how the state government in Gujarat responds to all these criticisms brewing in their state. The claims made by the group is serious since they believe, Now that they won power in the Gujarat and Rajasthan, they do not want to be associated with such group, which has a pretty controversial history, where their members were implicated in the many cases.
Pravin Togadia of Politics
There were also allegations by Pravin Togadia in early January, where he mentioned that top BJP politicians were trying to frame him in some false case. They were all conspiring against him to take him out of all these things since he began speaking against the party.
Later, he also added that if they really wanted to arrest him, the Gujarat home minister and Gujarat Chief Minister knew that he was in Ahmedabad. he believes that his opinions and freedom of expression is being curtailed by the politicians who are conspiring against him in the party. It remains to be seen how he responds after he comes out of the hospital as he has said in the statement that he would reveal the names of people behind all these conspiracies once he comes out of the hospital.
What the truth of the matter is certainly not known, but the blame game has begun in the political circles in the country, where everybody is ready with their opinion in the matter. If he is really guilty of any charges, then what was being done in ten years of time. There is no any statement being made by any of the senior BJP party leaders, against whom Pravin Togadia is claiming all the charges. Do we see the real picture in few days?
