A Kanpur couple called off their wedding a few days before they were about to tie the knot because of their differences over Modi and his economic policies.
The groom, a businessman, and the bride, a government employee, met to discuss how they were going to split the wedding expenses when the topic drifted to Modi – which is when their differences surfaced.
While the groom is a supporter of the Prime Minister and believes he is strengthening India’s economy, the bride thinks otherwise and is of the view that his policies go against the poor.
Ergo, as the story goes, the wedding was called off. While it is a strange reason to not marry someone, there have been more bizarre reasons than this – including a Kanpur woman cancelling her wedding because of a lack of toilet facilities in the groom’s house, and another instance, where a wedding was called off because two families in Bangalore couldn’t agree on what kind of biryani to serve at the wedding.
