Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann to get married on Thursday
Punjab chief minister Bhagwant Mann is expected to get married to Gurpreet Kaur, a doctor, at a private ceremony in Chandigarh on Thursday.
“The chief minister is getting married in a private ceremony here tomorrow.
He will tie the knot with Dr Gurpreet Kaur, who belongs to Pehowa in Haryana's Kurukshetra,” AAP’s Punjab unit chief spokesperson Malvinder Singh Kang told PTI.
Delhi chief minister and AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal and other party leaders are expected to attend.
This is the second marriage for the 48-year-old satirist-turned-politician. He and his ex-wife Inderpreet Kaur filed for divorce in 2015, and she currently lives in the US with their 21-year-old daughter Seerat and 17-year-old son Dilshan. The daughter and son had attended his oath ceremony in March.
Italian comedian Beppe Grillo who leads the five-star movement, an anti-establishment party similar to AAP, was Mann’s inspiration to join politics in 2011.
Questioned about his personal life in the past, he had replied that he had chosen Punjab as his family.
