Kolkata: VHP leader Pravin Togadia on Friday was non-committal on his organisation extending support to BJP`s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, saying time has not come to announce it.

"Everybody should keep in mind that without the support of majority, no one can come to power," the international working president of VHP said.

Asked if the VHP would support Modi, Togadia said "on the question of supporting any particular person, time has not yet come to announce it."

The VHP leader demanded that steps be taken to set up a Majority Financial Developmental Council, on the lines of Minority Developmental Council and that provisions be made for providing school fees to poor Hindu students.

Togadia claimed that VHP has apprised 450 MPs on the demand and talks on this would also be held with political parties.

"In this country, those who are minorities get all the facilities and the majority community is discriminated," he claimed.

He also said that the Central government should take steps to stop the attack on Hindus in Bangladesh.
