"Hugs for tukde tukde gang and arrest of peaceful youth raising pro-Modi slogans? Where are the champions of free speech? Yuvraj (prince) of Congress must know that time follows the course taken by youngsters. Stop intimidating youth of India, which has rejected your brand of politics," Shah tweeted.

The BJP alleged that several protesters, the party claimed they included techies, were taken into custody. It also condemned the police action and alleged that Congress workers had attacked the protesters.

Shah, in his tweet, tagged a post by his party's Karnataka unit which said the state police had arrested some techies for raising pro-Modi slogans at Manyata tech park in Bengaluru. Rahul was to address a meeting at the venue.

"This is the real face of democracy in a Cong-JD(S) ruled state. It's total dictatorship where freedom of choice and expression of citizens is suppressed," it had said, posting a purported video of some people being taken away by cops.
