Lucknow, Mar 19: The new Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Akhilesh Yadav has been facing stern criticism over his decision of inducting the controversial and tainted MLA Raghuraj Pratap Singh alias Raja Bhaiya in his cabinet. Now, the young CM may again land in a bigger controversy after giving him (Raja Bhaiya) the authority to control prison department.

According to many, Raja Bhaiya, who is going to handle prisons in the state, should be in jail as he has been accused in a multi-crore scam along with several criminal cases such as attempt to murder, kidnapping and abduction. He was arrested and was sent to jail during the tenure of Mayawati.

Akhilesh's flip-flop during his pre-election campaign has come in the open as he had promised not to tolerate any criminals and tainted persons in his cabinet. Now with the induction of Raja Bhaiya, the 38-year-old CM faced criticism and people in the state might have lost some hope of getting justice during Akhilesh's government.
