    • I recall seeing a video many years ago of the acceptance ( presentation ceremony) of railway compartments from India by this imbecilic minister DULL -ASS. I am not sure if they were used and refurbished or brand new. But it was hilarious watching the overhead strap he was hanging on to break off the overhead pole.
