Tejashwi Yadav is ‘Seasonal Sanatani’ says Giriraj Singh

While speaking to reporters, Union Minister Giriraj Singh said, “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.”

Bihar deputy CM Vijay Sinha slams Yadav

On RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav’s post on social media platform ‘X’ eating fish, Bihar Deputy CM Vijay Sinha while speaking to news agency ANI, said, “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. 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’.”
