The third minister was completely at variance with the two ministers. He stuffed the bag with dried leaves and dirt. His purpose was to deceive the king by making an impression that he did what he was supposed to do. He had nothing in his bag.
They all returned to the king’s court with their bags. Without asking what they’d gathered, the king instructed every minister to be sent to an individual prison for three months.
The kind of food they will be eating is what each of them had gathered in their bags.
The Prime Minister was delighted because he had enough amount of good food. He had nothing to worry about. The second minister was concerned because half of his food was filthy.
