"It is very shocking and saddening to see such a grand VHP that we all built to this fantastic level being made to bend, not for Hindu well-being but for individual whims and fancies of some powermongers", said Togadia after congratulating the new team, according to The Indian Express.
Former Himachal Pradesh governor V S Kokje was today elected the VHP's worldwide president.
Unnao rape case: Accused Kuldeep Sengar's goons threaten villagers, alleges victims's uncle
The agency arrested Sengar, the prime accused in the case, last night after 16 hours of questioning at its office in Lucknow . The Yogi government had recommended a CBI inquiry into the case on Thursday morning and the request was immediately accepted.
Mr. Togadia has held that position since 2011, though he had been the driving force of the organisation since 2003. Kokje got 131 of 192 votes polled in the election despite Togadia throwing his weight behind Reddy. An earlier attempt to dislodge Mr. Reddy and consequently Mr. Togadia in December 2017, at the Bhubaneswar meeting of the outfit's Central board of trustees, came to nought. Closely associated with the RSS, Mr. Kokje had also been the president of the Bharat Vikas Parishad and the vice-president of the VHP. Soon after quitting, Togadia announced an indefinite fast from Tuesday seeking the welfare of Hindus and to seek construction of Ram Janmbhoomi Temple at Ayodhya, nationwide ban on cow slaughter, enforcement of the common civil code and relocation of displaced Kashmiri Hindus.

Togadia has of late been critical of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP leadership.
