PM Modi Slams Opposition’s ‘Mughal-Era Thinking’ Amidst Food Video Controversy

| Updated: April 12, 2024 20:01

The controversy surrounding a video of RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav consuming fish escalated on Friday, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi launching a scathing attack on Yadav, his father Lalu Yadav, and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi. The Prime Minister accused them of exhibiting ‘Mughal-era thinking’ and engaging in appeasement politics targeting a specific vote bank.

The Prime Minister alleged that such videos are deliberately posted during periods considered sacred by Hindus, with the intent to provoke and irritate the majority of India’s population.

Tejashwi Yadav, in his defence, clarified that the video was filmed a day before the commencement of Navratri and was uploaded to “test the IQ of the BJP and Godi media followers”. He criticised the BJP’s politics as being limited to scrutinising what people eat and wear, alleging that the party’s governments have failed to deliver for the people.

Addressing a rally in Udhampur, Jammu and Kashmir, a week ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, PM Modi referred to a video from September last year showing Rahul Gandhi and Lalu Yadav cooking mutton. He accused the Congress and other members of the INDIA alliance of disregarding the sentiments of the majority of the country’s population.

The Prime Minister drew parallels between the Mughal invaders’ satisfaction in destroying temples and the opposition’s alleged delight in uploading such videos during the auspicious month of Sawan. He claimed that by doing so, the opposition is attempting to tease people and consolidate their vote bank.

Without naming Tejashwi Yadav, the Prime Minister criticised the uploading of a video showing the consumption of non-vegetarian food during Navratra as a similar attempt. He questioned the opposition’s intent in hurting the sentiments of people and accused them of attacking the country’s beliefs to discomfort a large part of the population.

Reiterating his criticism of dynastic politics, the Prime Minister warned the opposition that when the people decide, even princes from large royal families have to relinquish their thrones.

In response to the Prime Minister’s remarks, Tejashwi Yadav, speaking at a rally on Friday, accused the BJP of diverting attention from real issues and focusing on what people eat and wear. He challenged the BJP to talk about the issues of Bihar, their plans to curb migration from the state, and their agenda for the next five years if voted to power.
