BJP's Manoj Tiwari: "Tukde-Tukde Gang" Turning Farmers' Stir Into Shaheen Bagh
New Delhi: Delhi BJP MP and the former party president of the party's state unit Manoj Tiwari on Wednesday claimed that the so-called "tukde-tukde gang" was trying to turn the farmers' stir at the national capital's borders into the Shaheen Bagh like a protest.
The Shaheen Bagh in South Delhi was the hub of the agitation against the citizenship amendment act earlier this year before the coronavirus pandemic struck.
In the statement, Mr. Tiwari said that alleged slogans in favor of Khalistan and threat to the Prime Minister by some protesters among the farmers showed that it was a "well-planned conspiracy" to create "unrest" in the country.
"Presence of individuals and groups who opposed National Register of Citizens (NRC) and CAA at Shaheen Bagh clearly establishes that the "tukde-tukde" gang is trying to experiment with Shaheen Bagh 2.0 and create unrest under the grab of farmers' protest," charged Tiwari.
The farmers from Punjab, Haryana, UP, and the other states are camping on Delhi's borders demanding that the Centre withdraw the three new agriculture laws.
Manoj Tiwari said that he hoped that the real farmers protesting against the farm laws will understand the reality and thwart the "intentions" of the alleged "tukde-tukde" gang.
"The conspirators of riots, who had succeeded in Delhi, are preparing to incite nationwide riots in the name of farmers. It is the responsibility of every citizen of this country to defeat them," he claimed.
