Launching a scathing attack on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over the ongoing farmers' agitation against the new farm laws, Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal on Tuesday called the saffron party the real “tukde tukde gang”. He also accused the BJP of setting Hindus against Sikhs in Punjab.

Badal levelled the allegations while interacting with the media in Bathinda on Tuesday.

Badal also took to Twitter and wrote: “BJP is the real #TukdeTukdeGang in the country. It has smashed national unity to pieces, shamelessly inciting Hindus against Muslims & now desperate setting peace-loving Punjabi Hindu against their Sikh brethren especially #farmers. They’re pushing patriotic Punjab into communal flames.”

After his wife Harsimrat Kaur Badal quit as a Union minister, SAD had snapped ties with the NDA over the new agricultural legislations and has been backing the farmers since then.

SAD’s chief patron and former Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal had on December 3 returned his Padma Vibhushan award in protest against the new farm laws, terming them as a “betrayal of farmers” by the BJP-led Union government.

Sukhbir Badal added that if one agrees with the policies of the NDA government, he is termed as a desh bhakt (patriotic), and if not, he is labelled as ‘anti-national’ or ‘extremist’ or from ‘tukde-tukde gang’. “Is Parkash Singh Badal, who returned his Padma Vibhushan, or Harsimrat Kaur Badal, who resigned from Union ministry in protest against the farm laws, anti-national?” he questioned
