SURAT: Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) has stated that politics of development without security for Hindus means nothing to it.
The stand was made clear by Pravin Togadia, international working president of the VHP, who is here for a three-day meeting of board of trustees and governing council. He said that the VHP in its meetings with more than 450 MPs from different parties in the last six months has made clear that every political party must give priority to education, health, employment, security and self respect for Hindus including a commitment to build Ram temple at Ayodhya.
“They will have to come out in writing in their election manifesto and will have to mention it in their election speeches to get our support,” said Togadia.
He disclosed that the VHP has started a helpline 02066803300 to help Hindus on safety and security issues. By February, the VHP will start free medical consultancy aid to Hindus in five cities.
The VHP meet is being attended by 227 representatives from India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Thailand, Fiji , Malaysia, UK, US, Australia and other countries.
Responding to a query on prevailing political scenario, Togadia said, “The mood is severely anti-Congress but it is not pro-BJP every where.”
