pm hobnobs with ‘younger brother’

bric-3No matter which party comes to power in Delhi, industrialists are never out of favour or circulation. They keep mingling with the ruling and opposition sets just the same in all seasons. The fact is that politicians like to liaise with big industrialists. For one, the latter accommodate their relatives and friends in their respective industries. For another, industrialists take care of politicians’ ‘comfort’ off and on. So, keeping this trend alive, the younger brother of a top industrialist is currently very much in circulation and is the envy of other industrialists. In any case, the brothers always manage to ingratiate themselves with every regime. Modi palace sources say the Prime Minister reportedly likes the younger brother more. So does one of his trusted ministers, who holds an important portfolio. A member of the industrialist’s public relations team is a close friend of the minister and younger brother routes all operations through him. The Modi government is reportedly taking care of Younger Brother, never mind that his company owes a debt of `30,000 crore. In return, the industrialist is also touring BJP-ruled states and establishing the right contacts. It is rightly said, “Become so big that if you begin to sink there will be others who will desperately save you.”
