In a new twist to the marriage of BJP MLA’s daughter Sakshi Mishra to a Dalit youth Ajitesh Kumar, the priest of Ram Janaki temple where she reportedly got married has denied that any wedding was solemnized by him.
"No marriage takes place here and no marriage has taken place either," news agency ANI quoted the temple priest Parashuram Das as saying. The marriage certificate, presented to validate the claims of Sakshi's marriage to Ajitesh, mentions the name of Acharya Vishwapati Shukl and the Ram Janaki temple.
A marriage certificate being presented shows that Sakshi got married to Ajitesh on July 4 this year. "This is wrong. Nothing has happened here. Nobody knows that Shukl here. This is fake. He (Shukl) has got nothing to do with this place. I have been here for 40 years now. My stamp is not there," says Das.
"We are tired of hiding around. Our lives are in danger. Please stop troubling Abhi and his relatives. They are not at fault here. The decision is ours. I want to live free and happy," Sakshi had said in a video message to her father a few days ago.
