The lone Muslim minister in Uttar Pradesh’s newly formed BJP government, Mohsin Raza, on Thursday lost his cool after he found photos of Mulayam Singh Yadav and veteran Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan in his office.
In the video posted by news agency, ANI, Raza is seen angrily asking an official.
He says, ‘Whose government is now?..Why would you need order to remove their photos. You must remember who’s government it is now. You have to keep that in mind.”

The BJP had won a historic mandate in the just concluded assembly elections by winning 325 out of 403 seats. The party had not fielded a single Muslim candidate, but it decided to include Raza into Yogi Adityanath’s cabinet.
Raza has been a known supporter of Adityanath.
