New Delhi: With just days left for the Delhi Assembly polls, newly-elected BJP national president JP Nadda said that Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal is supporting 'tukde-tukde' gang to break India for his vote-bank politics.

Taking to Twitter, Nadda said, "Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid and other anti-India forces raised seditious slogans like 'Bharat tere tukde honge' in JNU. They were threatening to violate India's sovereignty. Law enforcement agencies moved in, investigated the matter and in Jan 2019 were ready to file chargesheet."

"They sought Kejriwal's permission to prosecute this tukde-tukde gang, but one year later, till y'day, no permission was granted. Kejriwal must tell Delhi why is he supporting those who want to break India? Is it because acting against these anti-nationals will hurt his vote bank?" his subsequent tweet read.

On January 24, Union home minister Amit Shah also accused AAP’s Arvind Kejriwal of making "false promises" to the people of the city-state and "not giving permission for the prosecution of tukde-tukde gang". 

He later urged the people to strengthen the hands of Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the security of the national capital.

Addressing election rallies at Karawal Nagar and Mustafabad, Shah accused AAP and Congress of pursuing vote bank politics and alleged that they had instigated "riots" in the national capital during the protests against the CAA. He said PM Modi's government would work to make Delhi the best capital city in the world.

Shah talked of the court verdict on the Ayodhya issue and said work on the grand construction of Ram temple would begin in four months.

The much-awaited Delhi Assembly elections will take place on February 8, and the counting of votes will be held on February 11.
