It’s heartening to see the younger generation taking politics very seriously. The increased participation in protests and the ever-buzzing social media space is a reflection of the youth seriously participating in the political future of the country. Such is the seriousness that a couple in Uttar Pradesh reportedly cancelled their wedding just because they differed on their outlook towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

According to a Times of India report, a businessman in UP was due to get married to a woman who is a government employee. The article doesn’t disclose the names of the parties and neither where the couple is located, but says the betrothed duo had decided to meet at a temple to finalise the arrangements of the wedding.

Everything appaently was going smoothly till one of them raised the topic of the economic slowdown in the country. While the woman was reportedly conviced that the person responsible for this was Modi, the man was a Modi supporter and refused to buy the reasoning. Soon a heated argument followed and the two decided to part ways.

Much to the apparent – and understandable shock – of their families, the two conveyed their decision to not get married any more to them.

This adds to the increasing list of ‘bizarre’ reasons for which weddings have been called off in India. From the lack of a loo to the inability of the groom to solve a simple math problem, the past couple of years have seen interesting but seemingly valid reasons for couples to call of their wedding at the last minute. Not seeing eye-to-eye on the country’s PM seems to be as valid a reason as any, don’t you think?

    Indian so-called media don't have news. spreading the fake news without names location. Before posting this silly article think about the VALUES of journalism. Their both minds filled with 'IGO'. Not for one person.

        She is a government employee and obviously was frustrated because she couldn't take bribes like before.

            My friends, You will NOT believe , similar sad story happened to me last year . My parents had arranged my marriage ,with a highly qualified girl working in a reputed company . Just before the marriage , she caught me m,as,tu,rb,ating in my room while loudly chanting - " modi , modi , modi , modi.." . She got angry and created a big drama , and called off the marriage . We tried to reason with her but she did not relent . I also got angry and told her if she did not like my love for honorable Modiji , then she can get lost .Later i learned that this SICkular pr00st1tute married some anti-national from JNU few months ago.I hope she becomes a widow soon.Anyway good riddance , I am sure i can get a girl 10 times better than her.

                  Businessman has taken a right decision of not marrying a pseudo secular girl. The girl was govt employee...we all know Indian govt employees are useless and mediocre....those who can't do anything else go for govt jobs....Got job is a resting place for incompetent people.... With his skills,.Businessman will definitely find a intelligent, goodlooking and super hot girl....

                    Good. An educated society is what India is becoming. These two , would have been couple, took a very sensible decision to not to marry. If they cannot accommodate each other on such abstract issue as economic slow down of India, they certainly could not have agreed ever as to what should be there for dinner , or choice of colour of dress of the other.
