A day after a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) lawmaker questioned Indian Cricket captain Virat Kohli’s patriotism for marrying actor Anushka Sharma in  Italy, Congress leader Randeep Surjewala took a swipe at the BJP saying young men and women should seek approval of the saffron party before getting married.

Surjewala has asked young men and women in the country to take approval from the BJP to make decisions on whom to marry, where to mary and the food menu for marriage reception.

He has even marked his tweet as ‘Issued in Public Interest’.

The Congress legislator wrote, “Attention - To all ‘Young Men/Women’ in India. Pl take prior approval from BJP for-: 1. Deciding whom to marry; 2. Deciding the venue of marriage; 3. Deciding the nature of festivities; 4. Deciding the food menu. Thank You. PS - Issued in Public Interest.”

A Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Guna Legislator Panna Lal Shakya on Tuesday had questioned the patriotism of Indian Cricket captain Virat Kohli for preferring Italy over India to get married.

The Guna Legislator had said, “Indian Cricket team captain Virat Kohli earned money in India. Got fame because of India… But he could not find a place to marry in the country.”
