New Delhi :  

Mohsin Raza, newly-appointed minister in Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s cabinet, was in for a rude shock when he entered his office for the first time. Reason – the photographs of Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav and Azam Khan on the wall.

The BJP leader, who is the only Muslim minister in Adityanath’s cabinet, was taken aback by the picture on the wall of his office.

A video shows Raza pointing to the picture and asking government officials what the picture was doing in his office. 

"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 asks irately.

A staff member explained that they were waiting  for instructions to remove the photograph, Raza reacted sharply saying, "Why wait for order to remove (the photo)? You should know who has formed the government. This is your responsibility," said Raza in a rebuke to the staffer.
