Upendra Bharti | HENB | New Delhi | Feb 9, 2019:: Former Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Pravin Togadia on Saturday declared his own political party, Hindusthan Nirman Dal (HND), at the Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium in the national capital just months ahead of general election 2019 in which it wants to contest from all the Lok Sabha constituencies in Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat.
Announcing the formation of the outfit in the presence of his supporters and well wishers from across the country, Togadia said he would contest from Ayodhya.
“The new party will fight the upcoming Lok Sabha polls and other elections in future as well,” he said in a statement said.
Remarking that all political parties had failed on the issues of poverty, employment, farmers’ suicides and national security, rehabilitation of Kashmir Hindus, Population control law, Togadia said his party would take up these important issues so far ignored by the present BJP and previous Congress Govts along with all Hindutva related issue including construction of Ram Temple on urgent basis through ordinance under its prime agenda.
As there was no way to register his new party to contest ensuing General Election 2019 for the time constraint, Dr Togadia opted the Hindusthan Nirman Dal+ which was established mainly by a Delhi based Hindutvawadi businessman and Ex-Bajrangdal youth leader Shailendra Jain in 2010.
Though there was a prominent absence of any Big political face to join HND, a good presence of various Gujjar, Patel, Jat and Jain community marked the inauguration of HND in its new phase.

The entry of Dr Pravin Togadia in direct politics with his new outfit Hindusthan Nirman Dal (HND) may divide the Hindu vote bank of BJP, experts opine.
With this political move of HND of Dr Togadia, many concerned in the Sangh Parivar expressed their views to start Ayodhya Ram Temple immediately to sideline the HND politics to retain BJP’s political hold among the Hindus.
In another development after the announcement of HND, Gujarat Police with hooligans sneaked into the AHP office of Dr Pravin Togadia in Paldi area of Ahamedabad and ransacked the office and threw away the household goods and worshiping deities in the streets, as alleged by Dr Togadia in his twitter handle.
The allegation of Dr Togadia is supposed to be very serious, but no media yet to cover the story of attack so far.
Here is the first interview of Dr Pravin Togadia after launching HND as his political party.
In the speech delivered in the programme of HND on Saturday, Dr Pravin Togadia alleged BJP’s “Congressikaran” (transformation as into Congress) and promised to start construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya “within a week of coming to power.”
“Congressikaran (transformation into the Congress) of the BJP has happened — both in its ideology and by its people… There are Rita Bahugunas in BJP in every state…Congress men are MLAs and ministers in BJP governments in several states, including Uttarakhand, Assam and Uttar Pradesh,” Togadia said as he launched his party, referring to the BJP minister in the Uttar Pradesh government, Rita Bahugana Joshi, who was previously in the Congress.
He also hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP government at the Centre for “not keeping the promises they had made before the 2014 Lok Sabha elections”. “At present, BJP is in power — from panchayat to Parliament, but still Ram Temple was not been built in Ayodhya,” Togadia said, adding that if he would come to power, construction of Ram temple will begin in Ayodhya within a week.
“Pakistan is taking our fishermen from Gujarat hostage, and our Prime Minister is sharing cake with Pakistan Prime Minister,” Togadia added.
He also said that Army will be ordered to “bombard stone-pelters” in Kashmir to end stone-pelting and population control would be ensured by enforcing ban on more than two children.
Togadia had been at loggerheads with the BJP, and after parting ways from the VHP he has been consistently criticising the VHP and Narendra Modi government on the issue of Ram temple.
Togadia said that the BJP lost the Assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh because they “failed to fulfill the promises they had made”. He said that farmers were committing suicide and youths were not getting jobs. He said his party would “not divide votes of any political party but would emerge as an alternative to others”. Earlier, his supporters called for making Togadia as the next PM and hailed him as Modi’s “alternative”.
