After a BJP MLA’s objection to the Virat Kohli-Anushka Sharma wedding abroad, Congress leader Randeep Surjewala on Wednesday took a dig at the saffron party by telling the youth to take the its “prior approval” before deciding their wedding venue and food menus.

“To all the young men/women in India, please take prior approval from the BJP for: Deciding on whom to marry, deciding venue of marriage, deciding nature of festivities and deciding food menus,” the Congress spokesperson tweeted.

BJP legislator Pannalal Shakya from Guna in Madhya Pradesh on Tuesday raised questions about India cricket captain Kohli’s “patriotism” after he married the actress Anushka in Italy.

“A big cricketer got married recently. But in such a large country, he could not find a place to marry. A player for whom the land of India doesn’t hold any importance can’t be a patriot,” Shakya said, without naming Kohli.
