Maharashtra Govt told to probe Togadia's hate speeches
New Delhi: Amidst demand for action against VHP leader Praveen Togadia for allegedly making provocative speeches, the Centre has asked the Maharashtra government to probe the charges and book the Hindu outfit leader if he is found to be violating laws.
Prithviraj Chavan-led Maharashtra government to investigate allegation that Togadia made provocative speeches against the members of a particular community. "The home ministry's advise is clear. Once they have confirmed forensic evidence, appropriate action as per law must be taken against Togadia," an official said.
The Maharashtra government has assured the Centre at the highest level that they will take due legal process. Minister of state for home RPN Singh said if Togadia's speech is inflammatory, the state government must take action against him.
