CM Bhagwant Mann is all set to marry Dr Gurpreet Kaur, Thursday, July 7. The close private ceremony is expected to be solemnised at his residence. The 48-year-old comedian-turned-CM’s bride is from Sangrur. Various media reports suggest that Mann’s mother and sister have chosen Kaur.
For Mann, this is his second marriage. His first wife, Inderpreet Kaur, now lives in the US. The couple divorced almost six years ago (2015) and have two children, currently with the mother. Ms Inderpreet was present with the chief minister during campaigning for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
Buzz has it that Mann was unable to dedicate enough time to his family after becoming a political figure, leading to the divorce.
In his Facebook post, Bhagwant Mann’s shares how he chose Punjab over his family. Mann, who is well-known in Parliament for his oratory, wrote a poem on his Facebook page.
Following Mann’s victory in the Punjab election 2022, Inderpreet Kaur stated in an interview that both of their children have arrived in India and would attend Bhagwant’s swearing-in ceremony at Khatkar Kalan. They are overjoyed and amazed, she added. When Mann entered politics in 2011, he joined the Peoples’ Party of Punjab (PPP), and Inderpreet actively engaged in PPP political rallies and campaigns.
Ironically, she used to campaign for him in the Sangrur block, where from where Mann was elected as an AAP MP for the first time.
