When we did a fact check, we found that the claim is FAKE.
On putting the picture through Reverse Image search, we found the original picture is shared by Tejashwi Prasad Yadav two years ago on his official Twitter account on June 11th, 2017.

We also found a media report by newswire PTI which clearly state that he celebrated his birthday with his family at his residence.
The above information proves that the pictures are two years old and are taken at his residence.
