Amid speculations, former president of Viswa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and the present president of newly-floated Antarashtriya Hindu Parishad (AHP), Pravin Togadia arrived in Guwahati on Wednesday morning despite Assam Police imposing a ban on his proposed public address slated for later in the day.
Immediately after his arrival, the firebrand leader questioned the logic behind the ban imposed on his speaking at public functions or addressing media conferences in the State.
Togadia, said it is an attempt of the government to gag his voice. He also said, the present government at the Centre is trying to silence the voices of the Hindus.
Togadia, after setting foot in Guwahati went straight to Kamakhya Temple from where he is expected to visit the Ugratara Temple.
Togadia is also expected to meet Commissioner of Police, Guwahati, Hiren Chandra Nath to discuss the restrictions imposed on him by Assam Police on Tuesday.
Notably, Guwahati Police has barred former president of Viswa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and the president of newly-floated Antarashtriya Hindu Parishad (AHP), Pravin Togadia, from visiting Guwahati, for two months keeping in view the prevailing situation of the State ahead of publication of the final draft of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) by stating that his ‘inflammatory’ speeches might create unrest in the State.
The Commissioner of Police, Guwahati, Hiren Chandra Nath on Tuesday issued a prohibitory order asking Togadia to desist from holding any press conference or attending any programme organized by Antarashtriya Hindu Parishad in the city.
