Bihar's fomer deputy chief minister and Rashrtiya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav kicked up a storm on social media after, on the first day of Navratri, he posted a video of him eating fish during his campaign. As the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), without losing any time, attacked Yadav for eating non-vegetarian food during Navratri, social media users also slammed the RJD leader.

On Tuesday, Yadav shared a video on X, in which he is seen having lunch in a helicopter with Vikassheel Insaan Party (VIP) chief Mukesh Sahni, eating Chechra fish. He shared the video with the caption, "Lunch in a helicopter amidst the election rush and busyness! Date - 08-04-2024." While having lunch, Yadav said that many people might feel the heat just by seeing him and Sahni together. He then proceeded to explain that they get only 10-15 minutes for their lunch during their long campaigning hours.

In the video, Yadav said that they have also kept buttermilk, stone apple juice, sattu and watermelon juice to beat the heat. "We have campaigned all day. Now we have only got 10-15 minutes to have lunch. Today Mukesh ji has brought food, brought fish which has one thorn. It's very delicious food. Along with it, there's bread, salt, onions, and green chilies. Thank you Mukesh ji for bringing fish," Yadav said in the video.

The video triggered people on social media and questioned Yadav for consuming non-vegetarian food during Navratri, a festival where most Hindus fast for nine days.

The BJP also jumped to criticise the RJD leader, with Union minister Giriraj Singh calling him a "seasonal sanatani".

"Tejashwi Yadav is a 'seasonal sanatani', many people be it Rohingyas or Bangladeshi infiltrators came here when his father (Lalu Yadav) was in power. They do politics of appeasement wearing the mask of Sanatan... Lalu Yadav's party is a private limited company, it's their company and to whom they want to give the shares become shareholders. In Bihar, be it infiltrators or Rohingyas, a large number of them have their names on the voter list. I demand a mechanism that denies them the voting rights," Singh said.

Reacting to the criticism, Yadav he and Sahni wanted to "test the IQ" of the BJP and its followers.

"We uploaded this video to test the IQ of the BJP and Godi media followers, and we were proven right in our thinking. The tweet says "Date," but what do the poor blind followers know? At the end, Sahni ji has also mentioned about getting chili."
