Shiromani Akali Dal chief Sukhbir Singh Badal slammed former ally BJP and dubbed the saffron party as the ‘real tukde tukde gang’ and accused it of setting Hindus against Sikhs in Punjab.

Asserting that “the BJP first set Hindus against Muslims”, Badal said the party has “become the most powerful divisive force”, out to “replay its evil game in Punjab”.

Asking his former ally to shun the “arrogant attitude” over the farm laws and accept what farmers want, Badal warned the BJP against any attempt to set Hindus against Sikhs.

He said if one speaks in favour of the central government, he is called ‘Desh Bhakt’ and if he speaks out against it, he is branded as ‘tukde tukde gang’.

“BJP is the real #TukdeTukdeGang in the country. It has smashed the national unity to pieces, shamelessly inciting Hindus against Muslims & now desperately setting peace-loving Punjabi Hindus against their Sikh brethren esp #farmers. They’re pushing patriotic Punjab into communal flames,” Badal alleged in a tweet.

The SAD had quit the National Democratic Alliance over the issue of farm laws. SAD leader Harsimrat Kaur Badal had also resigned as Union minister.

Later in a statement, Badal alleged that the BJP has been “splitting the country into pieces by setting one community against another”.

“So desperate is it for the power that it has no scruples about taking the communal polarisation route and setting the country on communal flames,” he alleged.

“The BJP first set Hindus against Muslims. Now, it is determined to replay the same evil game and re-enact the same tragedy in Punjab also,” he alleged.
