Congress and Akali Dal’s taunt on Raghav Chaddha’s marriage – ‘Is a common man’s marriage like this?’ IG News

Chandigarh: The lavish wedding of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Rajya Sabha member Raghav Chadha with Bollywood star Parineeti Chopra in Udaipur on Sunday became a political issue in Punjab with the opposition raising questions over the grandeur of the ceremony.

Congress and Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) targeted Chadha for spending crores on wasteful expenditure, claiming to be an “ordinary, poor common man”.

Apart from the “lavish Punjabi wedding”, Chadha is also facing criticism for allegedly misusing the Punjab government machinery for a private function and choosing Rajasthan as the destination.

Chadha and Chopra’s wedding took place in Udaipur on Sunday. The guest list included Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann.

On Monday, Chadha posted the wedding photos on X, while Chopra shared them on her Instagram page.
