SRINAGAR: The public relations officer of the militant Hindu organisation, Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Shiv Narayan Singh met governor NN Vohra at Raj Bhavan on Tuesday.
This is probably for the first time when a VHP functionary has called on the governor.
An official statement said about the meeting: “Singh informed the governor about various important matters of high public interest and the feedback he had gained during the course of his travels to all parts of the state. Singh also raised issue about the adverse consequences of Pakistan’s stepping up of activities along the LoC.”
Apprehending law and order issues, the previous government had banned the entry of VHP president Praveen Togadia into the state, as this organisation is seen to be behind scores of communal riots in India and for making anti-Muslim speeches.
Recently, Togadia said that “it is necessary to shoot those people in their chest who shout pro-Pakistan slogans or hoist Pakistani flags”.
