Yogi's only Muslim minister shouts on seeing Mulyam on wall

New Delhi: The office staff of UP minister Mohsin Raza faced wrath of their boss on Thursday, when the cricketer turned neta came to his office for the first time. The only mistake of staff was that they had not removed a photo from the new minister's office.

The only Muslim face in Yogi Aditayanath's cabinet lost his cool when he saw photo of Mulayam Singh Yadav on his office wall. "Aap ko pata hai ab sarkar kiski hai? Ye tasveer kyun lagi hui hain? (Do you know whose government is in power now? Why is this photograph here?)" Raza asked his staff in anger.

One staff member said that they were waiting for instructions to remove the photo. This irrated Raza further, who asked the person whether or not he's aware that the BJP, and not the SP, is in power now. "Why wait for order to remove (the photo)? You should know who has formed the government. This is your responsibility," said the agitated minister.

Raza is Minister of State for Science and Technology, Electronics, IT, Muslim Waqf and Haj in the Yogi Adityanath led government.
