 Raja Bhiya was the most suitable for the Post of Jail Matri as he has prisoned in  Jails for  many years . Mulayam Singh's Party has no other such an highly experienced Mantri for Jails.

 Raja Bhaiya divested of prison department? How sad! He might be shifted inside the prison.

Another minister who was praising the lady District Magistrate's beauty might ALSO be sent to the place he deserves richly.
