He is the Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Cane Development and Sugar Mills in the Yogi Adityanath government.

    I agree there should be ban on loud speakers all across India. Those who want to pray should go or pray at home on their own. No need for voice pollution & aggravation & disturbance to others peace and meditation etc. .

      The motive and agenda of this report by Islamic express is obvious. Charging based on false or distorted complaints & claims mean nothing.

            Testing time for Chief Minister Yogi Adityanathji. WIll the Uttar Pradesh minister Suresh Rana be arrested or will not be arrested? To give bhashan is easy, but to arrest the culprit, his own minster, is very difficult.
