The awkward exchange f gesture didn't miss the glances of the Netizens who reacted to the video.

This awkwardness seems to be limited just to Congress as in February 2024, a video went viral on social media which showed Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar exchanging an informal and cordial gesture with RJD Chief Lalu Prasad Yadav. This was the first interaction between Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad Yadav after Nitish Kumar switched his political inclination to join hands with the NDA.

After the change of power in Bihar and Nitish Kumar's re-entry into NDA, he had bumped into Lalu Prasad Yadav face to face for the first time on when RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav had reached the assembly with his wife Rabri Devi. The occasion was the process of filing nominations by RJD candidates for the Rajya Sabha elections. During this time, when Lalu Prasad reached the portico of the Assembly, at the same time Nitish Kumar was returning after participating in the proceedings of the House. During this, both the leaders met at the entrance. On seeing Lalu Prasad, Nitish Kumar first smiled in his familiar style and then went closer and met Lalu Prasad.
