Ahmedabad, June 15 (ANI): Senior Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Pravin Togadia has said the Bharatiya Janata Party suffered a thrashing in the recently held elections because it deviated from its core Hindu constituency and tried to project individuals and leaders who didn't matter to that constituency.
Analysing the BJP's performance in the general elections, Togadia said in an article for a local newspaper that the core Hindu constituency felt hurt at being taken for granted.
"If a party cannot satisfy its own core constituency and limits itself to power gain by projecting individuals or issues that do not appeal or matter to its core constituency, then it is a love lost. And lost love always hurts," Togadia said.
The VHP leader further said that the Hindu community felt neglected during the process of attracting other sections of the society.
Togadia cited the example of Left parties, saying that they suffered, as they had dumped their core constituency of farmers and poor people in West Bengal. (ANI)
