Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav sparked a Twitter storm on Thursday after he made a blunder while writing a congratulatory message on the Navami date of Navratri

While wishing the people, the SP chief wrote Mahanavami instead of Ram Navami. Yadav tweeted twice to wish Mahanavami. In the first tweet, he wrote, "Wishing you and your family a very Happy Ram Navami."

After Twitteratti caught his mistake and trolled him, Yadav deleted it and rewrote a new message. But by then people had taken the screenshots of his previous tweet and continued responding to his new tweet.

It is worth noting that on the second tweet of Akhilesh Yadav also people are trolling for Ram Navami's tweet. A user named Poonam Thakur (@RajputKanyaUP) wrote: "Instead of visiting temples for vote bank, if I had got good information about Hindu religion and customs, Akhilesh Yadav ji might not have made such a mistake."

One Ajay Dixit (@DixitJustice) wrote: "There is a limit, now they also have to tell that Ram Navami is held in Chaitra Navratri, it is Shardiya Navratri." 

Apart from Akhilesh Yadav, veteran Congress leader Anand Sharma also tweeted Mahanavami by writing Ram Navami.

Ramnavami falls in Chaitra Navratri. Navami in Shardiya Navratri is called Mahanavami and Goddess Siddhidatri is worshiped on that day.
