In a peculiar, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MP Raghav Chadha was caught off guard when a crow brushed past him at the Parliament House complex during the Monsoon session.
The Delhi handle of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) shared a series of pictures on Twitter, capturing the moment.
Along with the images, the BJP Delhi handle wrote tongue in cheek an old Hindi saying, "Jooth Bole Kauwa Kaate" (Crow bites the liar).
The jovial post immediately went viral among netizens, receiving over 4,000 likes and nearly 1,400 retweets.
The BJP Delhi tweeted, "We have always heard about it, but today we witnessed it too - the crow bites the liar!"
As Chadha emerged from the House after attending Rajya Sabha proceedings, a crow flew over his head and began pecking at the top of his head. Startled, Chadha quickly bent down in response.
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Raghav Chadha also responded wittily to the mocking tweet from the BJP.
He replied in a tweet "Ramchandra keh gaye siya se aisa Kaljug aayega, hans chugega daana dunka kauwa moti khayega (Lord Ram told Sita that the age of darkness will bring such a calamity upon humanity that a swan will eat grains and a crow will feast on pearls)".
The exchange occurred as multiple opposition parties submitted notices in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha, requesting a discussion on the Manipur clashes. This request came after a video went viral last week, showing women being paraded naked by a mob. The video sparked widespread outrage across the country.
