Agency News

Lucknow, Nov 17: Uttar Pradesh Congress MLA from Raebareli Aditi Singh, who has been served notice by the party for attending the special state assembly session on October 2 last, has found her soulmate and was set to marry a Punjab legislator Angad Saini in New Delhi on November 21.

"The wedding is taking place as everything was fixed already by my father before his demise. However, we have curtailed the celebrations and only close relatives and friends are on the guest list," the Raebareli MLA said here on Saturday.

"As we both are MLAs, we know that our prime responsibility is our constituency and its people. I will give as much time to my people as I am giving today, apart from this both I and Angad will also try to interact with people from each other’s constituencies",she added.

The pre-wedding celebrations would be taken place at a hotel in Delhi on November 20, while the wedding-cum-reception would be hosted on November 21 in the national capital itself. A grand reception would also be hosted in Nawanshehar, the place which had once been represented by the groom's father.

Daughter of five-time MLA Akhilesh Pratap Singh, Ms Singh made her debut in politics in 2017 on a Congress ticket, and defeated her nearest contender with over 90,000 votes to retain her father's legacy.

She had been in news recently after she defied party lines and went on to attend special assembly session called by UP Government to celebrate Gandhi Jayanti and was served show cause notice by the Congress party defying party whip but she refused to give any reply of the notice so far. Earlier too, She had praised abrogation of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir, which was not in sync with the official stand of the Congress party.

Mr Saini's father late Parkash Singh had been MLA from Nawanshehar, while his uncle Dilbagh Singh had been a six-time legislator. The couple was engaged last year in December in the presence of Aditi's father Akhilesh Singh, who passed away recently after brief illness. (UNI)
