Patna: In a major development, BJP on Thursday dared the Bihar government to ban ongoing meeting of the VHP in Patna.
Reportedly, BJP made its dare after few ministers including Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav threatened to take action against VHP leader Pravin Togadia, if he deliver a communal or 'hate' speech during ongoing meeting of the VHP here.
"BJP challenges the state government to ban the VHP meeting," senior BJP leader and former Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi said.
"The Bihar ministers have been attacking the VHP and Togadia for self-publicity," Sushil Kumar Modi claimed.
Earlier state Minorities Welfare Minister Abdul Ghafoor, of the Rashtriya Janata Dal, said that the VHP and Togadia have a single point agenda of creating social division and hatred.
Noteworhty, in the early 2000s, when Lalu Prasad's RJD was in power in Bihar, he did not allow Togadia to enter the state.
