What makes it absolutely bizarre is the fact that this wedding comes at a time when the country is struggling to withdraw mere Rs 4,500 from their accounts after Prime Minister Modi’s demonetisation move, rendering past notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 invalid.

The former BJP minister and mining baron, Reddy, was arrested in 2012 in connection with cases of corruption and illegal mining and released on bail last year. Reportedly, the Income-Tax Department is keeping a close watch on Reddy for all his transactions during the wedding to source flow of funds.
