BJP leaders in the state have been asked to give Janardhana Reddy's Daughter's lavish Rs 500 crore wedding a miss. Central leadership of the BJP has sent out clear instructions asking party members not to attend the controversial wedding that is slated to take place over November 15 and 16.

The government has advertised its decision to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes as a means to curb black money. At a time when the country is coming to terms with demonetisation and cash crunch, the BJP seems to want to keep away from the wedding that is ironically being pegged at Rs 500 crore.
Moreover, the instructions seem to reflect the BJP's need to distance itself from the man who is accused of amassing wealth beyond his known sources of income and someone who is an accused in the infamous illegal mining case.

Not just the BJP but leaders of other political parties are also expected to give the wedding a miss simply to avoid controversy of being associated with a wedding that is a crying shame on India's current situation on cash crunch.
