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 at 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.
