Thrissur: Puthezhath Ramachandran has resigned from the post of central vice-president of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad.

In a statement here on Saturday, he said he was disappointed with the manner in which the VHP functioned.

``The RSS is restricting the growth of the VHP. An RSS leader uses muscle power to achieve his purpose. I have been a victim. The RSS leaders told me I can quit the Sangh if I do not get along with this leader. A few people closed down by force the office I run at Pambanar in Idukki for community work. I have been denied justice and, hence, I am putting in my papers,'' he said.
