Lok Sabha and Assembly polls: Tamil Nadu surpasses Gujarat in cash seizures
Nakul Nath, the son of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath, is contesting from the Chhindwara Lok Sabha constituency. Sanjay Singh Masani is a regular face in his election rallies. Masani is the brother-in-law of former chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan. Nath introduces him as thus: "Yeh aapke nakli mama ke asli sale hain" (he is the real brother-in-law of your fake uncle). From being called "paon paon wale bhaiya" (foot soldier), Chouhan came to be addressed as "mama" (maternal uncle) by the children in the state. For his part, Masani joined the Congress before the Assembly elections and contested the Waraseoni Assembly seat on the party ticket. He lost to independent candidate Pradeep Jaiswal. Jaiswal is now cabinet minister in the state government.
