Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Praveen Togadia has been informally appointed to head of the outfit, VHP president Ashok Singhal said on Thursday.
"The decision to informally hand over the reins of VHP to Togadia has been taken in view of my advancing age and poor health," Singhal told reporters in Allahabad.
"From now onwards, all decisions with regard to VHP's programmes, including the Ram temple agitation, would be taken in consultation with Togadia, he said.
