His question was directed to UP CM Yogi Adityanath. These photos along with the question meant, if Yogi ji said not to celebrate Tippu Sultan Jayanti then why is BJP minister Yedurappa celebrating it.
All these 3 photos are years old, much before Yogi became CM or even BJP came to power, Modi ji became PM and not related to Tippu Sultna Jayanti.
Celebrating Tipu Sultan Jayanti started in Karnataka from Nov 30th 2015 while all these photos were taken much before.
