A Bharatiya Janata Party MLA from Madhya Pradesh on Tuesday questioned the patriotism of cricketer Virat Kohli for getting married to Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma in a ceremony in Italy.
“Lord Rama, Lord Krishna, Vikramaditya, Yudhishthir got married on this land. You all must have got married here. None of us goes to a foreign country to get married,” Shakya said. “Kolhi earned money here and spent billions there Italy. He doesn’t have any respect for the country. This proves he is not a patriot.”
Shakya was speaking to people at the Skill India Centre in Guna, and told them that the training imparted to them would be useless if they do not work in India. “After getting trained, you all should work here in the country. This would be the biggest national service,” he told the gathering.
