'No information concerning tukde-tukde gang': Government's reply to activist's RTI

New Delhi/IBNS: In a reply to a Right to Information (RTI) query, the Union Home Ministry has said it has no information regarding the "tukde-tukde gang", a term which is often used by the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to attack the Left and its supporters.

One Sanket Gokhale had filed the RTI and he took to Twitter to say, "PEOPLE - IT'S OFFICIAL The Home Ministry has responded to my RTI saying: "Ministry of Home Affairs has no information concerning tukde-tukde gang." Maanyavar is a liar. The "tukde tukde gang" does not officially exist & is merely a figment of Amit Shah's imagination."

However, IBNS has not confirmed the claim.

The word "tukde-tukde gang" emerged after anti-national slogans were allegedly raised by the Leftist students including their then president Kanhaiya Kumar in Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in 2016.

A sedition case was also filed against Kumar.

Equalising the "gang" with "anti-nationals", Union Home Minister Amit Shah in a recent address blamed the "gang" for the violence in Delhi over the anti-Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) protests.

"The time has come to punish the tukde-tukde gang. They are responsible for the violence which took place in Delhi," Shah had said.

Several BJP leaders also resonate the same words while blaming the Left.
