Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee on Saturday lost his cool and twisted the ear of a photo-journalist during a melee at a meeting of Pradesh Congress Committee in Kolkata.

As Mukherjee was climbing the stairs of a guest house in South Kolkata to hold a meeting with PCC working presidents, general secretaries and legislature party leaders, the photographers surged ahead of him to take vantage position and in the process pushed him, much to his annoyance.

An angry Mukherjee twisted the ear of the photographer and scolded him.
