Condemning the statement by Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray that people from Bihar were responsible for the rising incidents of rapes cases in the country, the BJP today said political parties which are trying to divide the nation should be disqualified.

Talking to reporters here, BJP leader Giriraj Singh said,"leaders who use hate in their campaigns must be stopped. The Election Commission must disqualify their parties."

Addressing a rally in suburban Goregaon in Maharashtra last night, Raj Thackeray said,"everyone is merely talking about the rape. No one is asking who did this. So many cases are slapped against me (for speaking against Biharis) but no one is talking about the fact that all these rapists are from Bihar."
