Ahead of the assembly elections in Delhi early next year, Home Minister Amit Shah sounded the poll bugle, urging the people in the national capital to punish the “tukde-tukde gang” for misleading the citizens about the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019.

The saffron party uses the word “tukde-tukde gang” to refer to the opposition parties.

Shah accused the opposition of creating confusion over the CAA and spoiling the atmosphere in the national capital by misleading the people.

Addressing an event organised by the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), Shah said, "The opposition led by the Congress created confusion about the Citizenship Amendment Act. By misleading people on the CAA, the opposition spoiled the peaceful atmosphere of Delhi," Shah said on the recent anti-CAA protests, some of which turned violent in areas like the Jamia Millia Islamia and Aligarh Muslim University and Seelampur.

Exuding confidence about the BJP's performance in the national capital, he said the time is up for the Arvind Kejriwal government in Delhi and "lotus will bloom."

"Delhi, you gave (us) all seven BJP MPs, now time to give BJP MLAs (a chance) in the next polls for development of the national capital."

Taking on Kejriwal, he said the AAP dispensation obstructed Centre's schemes.

"Kejriwal has not implemented the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana and Ayushman Bharat. He only wants to put his name on our pet projects," Shah said.

The ruling AAP, however, countered Shah's claims, by listing the Kejriwal government's achievements, in a tweet.
