One should feel proud of one's religion, values, nation and society but demeaning them isn't good. Secularism doesn't mean insulting your own religion. PM Modi has clearly said 'ab tushtikaran ki nahi, santushtikaran ki rajneeti hogi'.

“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.

He also called Lalu Yadav's party a private limited company.

"Lalu Yadav's party is a private limited company. It is 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."

Reacting to the video, Bihar deputy chief minister Vijay Sinha also attacked Tejashwi Yadav, saying that his act of eating fish during the Navratri season is “insulting his own religion.”

"A few people show themselves as a son of Sanatan but can't accept the values of Sanatan. I have no objection to food habits, but what you want to show by posting a video of eating fish in Navratri, is the politics of appeasement," he said.

In a video posted on X on Tuesday, April 9, Tejashwi Yadav can be seen eating fish with Mukesh Sahni on a helicopter, saying that during campaigning, he only gets 10-15 minutes to eat.
