Union minister Nitin Gadkari’s daughter, Ketki Gadkari tied the knot on Sunday with long time friend Aditya Kashedikar. The wedding, held in Nagpur, was attended by a large number of dignitaries including ministers Rajnath Singh and Venkaiah Naidu; BJP president Amit Shah and Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and yoga guru, Baba Ramdev.
Ketki Gadkari is the youngest daughter of Nitin Gadkari and her husband, Adiya Kashedikar currently works with Facebook. Interestingly, the groom’s father, Ravi Kaskhedikar and Gadkari were not on good terms few years back when former had led a movement against Gadkari’s policy of privatisation of water supply by Nagpur Municipal Corporation.
While the marriage function on Sunday saw few dignitaries on the guest list, a much larger number is expected to attend the reception to be held on December 8. “The marriage function is basically only for close relatives and friends. Not many VIPs have been invited. For VIP guests, two reception programmes, one at Nagpur and the other at New Delhi, have been arranged on December 6 and 8, respectively.
While all top VIPs like President, Prime Minister, Union Ministers and many others from ruling and opposition parties have been invited for the Delhi reception, the Nagpur reception will host state ministers, MLAs, journalists, industrialists and people from other walks of life,” sources said.
According to a recent news report, fifty chartered flights were arranged to fly down guests to the wedding ceremony. However, Gadkari rubbished these reports on Sunday calling them “mischievous and incorrect.”
