Bathinda, December 15
SAD president and MP Sukhbir Singh Badal on Tuesday said “BJP is the real tukde-tukde gang in the country. It has smashed national unity to pieces, shamelessly inciting Hindus against Muslims and now desperate setting peace loving Punjabi Hindus against their Sikh brethren especially farmers. They’re pushing patriotic Punjab into communal flames”.
Badal also said if one agrees with NDA government, he is a desh bhakt (patriotic), but if not, he is an anti-national or extremist or from ‘tukde-tukde’ gang. He asked that is Parkash Singh Badal, who returned his Padma Vibhushan or Harsimrat Kaur Badal, who resigned from Union ministry in protest against agri laws are anti-national.
