After the dream created by "acche din aayenge" jumla of PM Modi, now another jumla "tukde tukde gang" proves to be a lie.

The term much used by BJP and its right wingallies has been negated by the government itself.

"No Information On Tukde-Tukde Gang": Government in RTI reply to activist Saket Gokhale.

There is "no information concerning tukde-tukde gang", the Union Home Ministry responded to a query under the Right To Information Act, an activist has claimed.

In a tweet, Saket Gokhale has attached the response of the home ministry to his query, filed last month.

His post read, "The 'tukde tukde gang' does not officially exist & is merely a figment of Amit Shah's imagination".

"Tukde-Tukde gang" is a term often used by right-wing parties to attack the Left-backed groups and their supporters.

It was coined after anti-national slogans were allegedly raised at an event in Delhi's prestigious Jawaharlal Nehru University.

A sedition case was filed against Kanhaiya Kumar, then chief of its student union, which had organised the event.

Over the last years, Union Home Minister Amit Shah has also used the term multiple times.

"I want to say that it's time to punish the tukde-tukde gang led by the Congress. They are to be blamed for the violence in the city.

People in Delhi should punish them," he said at an event in Delhi last month, referring to those protesting against CAA.

After the attack on JNU students earlier this month , again the right wing has pulled the university into "tukde tukde" allegations.

Casting the "tukde tukde" slur, many in social media had expressed the opinion that the students deserved everything they got.

The Karnataka unit of the BJP had tweeted: "For too long, Leftists have been treated with kid gloves. No wonder this "good for nothing breed" has grown like a Weed.

It is time #JNU Tukde Tukde Gang is identified & punished for its acts of violence. Future of India can't be at the mercy of Leftist Goons".

Now when MHA itself has no information on this gang, India's faith in BJP's liar instinct gets stronger.
