Satpal Maharaj's Public Legitimacy

Prem Rawat's followers have always applauded his "tireless work" spreading "the Knowledge" across the globe. In fact his schedule shows he is incredibly lazy. This cannot be said of his eldest brother who has combined his career as a Godman with that of a politican who has held ministerial positions in the Indian National parliament. Satpal's wife is also active in Uttarakhand state politics and is currently (2013) Minister for Tourism, Horticulture, Culture, Women Empowerment & Child Welfare and Renewable Energy. "A picture is worth a thousand words." Prem Rawat, meanwhile, creates a blizzard of press releases lauding his minor charitable donations while he spends millions on himself annually. Though I did some intense google image searching I could not come up wth a single comparable picture of little brother Prem.
