After nearly a month of uncertainty, Naresh Tewani of Jodhpur will wed Priya Bachchani of Karachi on Monday.
This follows the intervention of external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj who ensured that the Indian embassy in Pakistan granted visas to the bride and her family for the function.
Jodhpur lad Naresh was engaged to Priya of Karachi for the past three years and had scheduled their wedding in Jodhpur on November 7.
But delays by the Indian embassy in Pakistan in granting visas for the bride and family had cast a shadow over the function. Finally , with the date drawing near, the groom had tweeted a request to Swaraj to intervene and arrange visas for 35 members, including the bride, of the Pakistani family to attend the wedding.
"We are thankful for the quick response of the minister.All the 35 members got their visas to come to Jodhpur, though, in two parts," said Naresh.
