BJP’s Maharashtra chief Raosaheb Danve has hit the headlines over his son’s opulent wedding that involved sleek video invites, designer sets and a lavish ceremony monitored by police using drone-mounted cameras.
At least 30,000 guests, including the state’s entire cabinet led by chief minister Devendra Fadnavis, attended the wedding of Raosaheb Danve’s son Santosh, who is an MLA from Bhokardan in the Marathwada region that has been in the grips of a drought for two years now.
Santosh wedded Renu, the daughter of well-known Marathi musician Rajesh Sarkate, at the Jabinda Estate lawns on Thursday in Aurangabad where a team of art directors built a wedding set resembling a medieval-era palace. The food served included cuisines from all over India as well as Chinese dishes, reports said. At least one major road in the city was closed down for the wedding, which was watched over by the local police using drone-mounted cameras.
