Addressing an inaugural session of the three-day World Hindu Congress, Singhal referred to Narendra Modi leading the Bharatiya Janata Party to victory in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls and said power had returned to a "Hindu swabhimani (proud Hindu)" in Delhi after eight centuries.

Singhal said the VHP was founded in 1964 with the objective of creating "a fearless Hindu, an invincible Hindu".

"Eight hundred years after it (the power at Delhi) went away form Prithviraj Chauhan, it did not come into the hands of a proud Hindu. It has happened after 800 years," Singhal said.
