Besides Article 370, VHP demands jobs for Hindu youths
Senior VHP leader Pravin Togadia today asked the political parties, especially BJP, to promise various concessions and schemes for Hindu community in their manifestos, apart from enactment of law to build the Ram temple in Ayodhya.
“We on behalf of the majority of Hindus have demanded that all the political parties should promise to provide fee-reimbursement to Rs 10 crore poor Hindu students in their manifestos,” said Togadia, the international working president of VHP.
Jobs should be provided to Hindu youths and security to over four lakh Kashmiri Hindus living in refugee camps, he said.
The parties should also promise to enact a law to facilitate construction of the Ram Temple in Aydhya, he said.
Cow slaughter and religious conversions should be banned, article 370 of Constitution should be removed and common civil code should be implemented, he said, listing other demands.
He said he has high hopes from BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi in this regard.
When asked about Congress President Sonia Gandhi seeking support of the Shahi Imam of Jama Masjid, Togadia said “in the democracy everyone has the right to seek votes”.
He said Hindus should also vote for a party which cares about their rights.
