Lalu dropped because of anti-Hindu stand: Togadia

December 11, 2005 01:47 IST

Launching a scathing attack on Rashtriya Janata Dal supremo Lalu Prasad, International General Secretary of Vishwa Hindu Parishad Praveen Togadia today claimed Lalu Prasad was dumped by the people because of his "anti-Hindu" stance.

Addressing VHP workers in Patna, Togadia said, "Everybody knows what had happened in Godhra and the role of Lalu Prasad as Railway Minister to shield those involved in the attack on Hindus travelling by the Sabarmati Express."

"Lalu was shown the door to cool his heels as he harboured anti-Hindu stand since the beginning and therefore, he has committed a crime of Hindu deshdroh (treason)," he said apparently referring to the Assembly election results.

Slamming Ramvilas Paswan for his repeated advocacy for making a Muslim chief minister, VHP leader dared Paswan to make his lone Muslimlegislator leader of Lok Janshakti Party legislature party now after his failure to fulfil his promise (to make a Muslim CM). "Paswan's extreme love for Muslims has proved costly for the LJP which suffered serious electoral reverses," he said.

Turning to infiltration of Bangladeshi nationals in Bihar, Togadia said "I don't want to offend chief minister Nitish Kumar at this stage asking him to drive out the Bangladeshi infiltrators but there is the need to put pressure on the government to check infiltration".

Togadia also urged the Nitish Kumar-led government to take immediate steps to check ISI activities and make concerted efforts to tone up the administration to tackle the law and order problem. He said VHP would extend full cooperation to the new regime for changing the face of Bihar.
