Togadia, who has been with the VHP for over three decades and served as its global working president since December 2011, announced quitting the outfit in a press conference after his nominee to the post of worldwide president of the VHP was defeated in voting.

Togadia who has been criticized by the BJP faced a lot of opposition within the VHP in recent times.
