Sadhvi Prachi not a VHP leader, says Surendra Jain

New Delhi: The Vishwa Hindu Parishad on Tuesday said that Sadhvi Prachi, who is described as a leader of the outfit, is neither a leader, nor a spokesperson or any office bearer.

“The VHP again clarifies that Sadhvi Prachi is neither the leader, nor its spokesperson or any office bearer of our organisation,” VHP’s joint general secretary Surendra Jain said in a statement.

He also said that the Sadhvi has been active in politics and had fought elections in the past too.

“Sadhvi Prachi has fought election on the symbol of a political party and is active in politics. Those active in politics can’t be an office bearer of the VHP,” Jain said.

“So, Sadhvi Prachi should not be described as VHP leader,” he added.
