Yadav was seen entering the temple with bodyguards and supporters, dressed with fake tiger skin, rudraksha and body smeared with sandalwood paste.

He was also seen wearing Hindu rosaries around his neck and hands.

Often viewed as inexpert against his younger, politically-savvy brother, Tejashwi Yadav, the RJD leader has been in the news for his attires more often than he did for politics.
