Humble farmer’s rich friends

JP (Jai Pakash or Jaypee) Associates managing director Sunny Gaur, infrastructure doyen Dilip Suryavanshi, mining Baron Sanjay Pathak and coal trader brothers Satish and Manish Saraogi are billionaires of Madhya Pradesh. They are famous entrepreneurs in their own right. Sanjay Pathak is also a powerful minister in the State cabinet. But they have come to be known better in the State for their controversial association with Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan. The Chief Minister, who, ironically, loves to wear his ‘humble farmer’ identity on his sleeves, has landed in a number of controversies for allegedly abusing his powers to help his rich friends prosper.
