New Delhi: Patidar leader Hardik Patel and Congress leader Arjun Modhwadia met Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) international working president Pravin Togadia in hospital on Tuesday to express support to latter’s claim that there are factions within the BJP that are trying to kill him.
“I don’t agree with Togadia on a number of issues, but on this topic, we are as one. Everybody knows the conspiracy being run under Amitbhai and Narendrabhai. It’s a known secret that the RSS is against Pravin Togadia,” Patel told media after the meeting on Tuesday.
The statement comes in light of claims made by senior VHP leader, who had gone missing on Monday morning and found unconcious later in the day.
Tearful Togadia, 62, made the allegations at a press conference, where he also said that he went into hiding as he feared police will kill him in an encounter.
“I am being targeted for a decade-old case, there is an attempt to suppress my voice. Rajasthan Police team came to arrest me. Someone told me plan was being made to kill me in an encounter,” Togadia claimed.
