Patna: From dressing up like Lord Shiva to leading a cycle rally to protest against the petrol and diesel price hike, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tej Pratap Yadav has hogged the limelight in the past few days like no other politico.
The former Bihar health minister, in his latest tweet, said that he could be religious but at the same time he is secular and not a fanatic. He said, "I'm religious, not fanatic. My policies are secular, my vision is righteous. My religion teaches me compassion, not hatred. Every person is equal to me because I am not humanist. Understanding the level of my devotion is not a matter of patronage of contractors who do politics of religion! Long live Shri Krishna!"
Sitting on a huge rock, Tej Pratap is seen appearing like Lord Shiva, wearing a saffron vest, a tiger print drape and carrying a trident.
मैं धार्मिक हूँ, धर्मान्ध नहीं।
मेरी नीतियाँ धर्मनिरपेक्ष हैं, मेरा जीवनदर्शन धर्मशील है।
मेरा धर्म मुझे करुणा सिखाता है, घृणा नहीं।
मेरे लिए हर जन समान है क्योंकि मैं मनुवादी नहीं।
मेरी साधना के स्तर को समझना धर्म की राजनीति करने वाले ठेकेदारों की वश की बात नहीं!
जय श्री कृष्ण! pic.twitter.com/q2YQuwGVEw

This, however, isn't the first time, the 29-year-old RJD leader has appeared dressing up like Lord Shiva. Last week, he was seen offered prayers at a Shiva Temple in Patna ahead of his visit to Baba Baidyanath Dham in Deoghar.
Tej Pratap, who got married earlier this year, was even depicted as Lord Shiva ahead of his wedding in the poster which was put up outside the residence of the RJD supremo Lalu Prasad yadav. While his wife Aishwarya Rai was featured as Parvati in the same, the controversial poster congratulating the young RJD leader and his better half on their wedding sparked a massive row online.
This isn't all! Tej Pratap, in June, took to Twitter and shared the first look poster of the upcoming film titled 'Rudra'. The RJD leader is, meanwhile, gearing up for the release of his debut film where he will be seen in 'Rudra - The Avatar'.
