When asked in an interview about what Yadav had to say on Narendra Modi's accusations on the government in Uttar Pradesh and the District Majistrate when denied of the ganga aarti, he said "Modi stands for model of dividing india. he is one of those people who play politics in the name of caste and religion. I don't understand his intentions. Now he wants to drag aarti into politics. I am confused if he was wanting to do a religious aarti or a political aarti".
