Karnataka’s education minister Tanveer Sait was recently caught viewing old photographs of Melania Trump during an Public event.
Earlier, it was thought that he was viewing pornographic images on his phone, during Tipu Jayanti celebrations in Raichur.
It was reported that photographs were of US President-elect Donald Trump’s third wife Melania Trump from her modeling years in the late 1990s.
“The photographs the minister was allegedly watching were of Melania Trump. Her pictures taken more than 15 years ago gained new traction in the run-up to the US presidential election and after Trump’s shock victory last week. Among the many messages sent to the minister’s WhatsApp account, Melania photographs, too, popped up on the screen,” a senior police official told TOI.
However, Sait maintained that he was looking at Tipu pictures on his phone.
He had also lodged a complaint against the camera person and reporter of the local news channel which broke the news. It took no time to make for the controversy to take political turn. BJP leader Eashwarappa demanded that the said photographs be made public.
