Punjab CM starts second innings, marries Dr Gurpreet Kaur

Chandigarh: Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann tied the knot with Gurpreet Kaur, a doctor from Haryana, in a low-key small private ceremony as per Sikh rituals at his official residence here amidst the presence of Delhi Chief Minister and AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal

It is for the first time that a marriage ceremony was solemnized in the Chief Minister’s residence. Mann, 48, divorced his first wife Inderpreet Kaur in 2015. He has two children from that marriage – daughter Seerat Kaur Mann (21) and son Dilshan Singh Mann (17), who attended Mann’s swearing-in ceremony on March 16.

The Chief Minister made a surprise wedding announcement a day earlier. It is believed to be an arranged marriage. Donning golden attire and a yellow turban with traditional studded ‘kalgi’ atop, groom Mann arrived for the wedding under a Phulkari ‘dupatta’ with AAP Rajya Sabha member Raghav Chadha, Kejriwal, and a select few AAP senior leaders walking beside him.

Kejriwal performed the wedding rituals as Mann’s elder brother. Bride Kaur, 32, an MBBS degree holder from Maharishi Markandeshwar University in Mullana in Ambala district, is the youngest of three sisters. The elder ones are settled in the US and Australia.
