New Delhi, May 13: As the Congress senior leader Digvijay Singh declared his love- affair with Television journalist Amrita Rai, on Twitter, last month, he reportedly went to seek blessings for his "second marriage" to his spiritual guru and renowned astrologer Shankaracharya Swami Shree Swaroopananda Saraswati ji.

But surprisingly, the guru refused to give blessings to Digvijay for second marriage.

According to media reports, 20-minute duration meeting took place between Digvijay and his guru at Paramhansi Ganga Aashram.

His guru reportedly told Singh that "he can give blessings for events that are in public interest and not for those that are against the interests of the public."

On Sunday, Digvijay again went to his guru to seek blessings, but the attempt proved to be futile.

On being asked about meeting, Shankaracharya Swami reportedly told media persons that Digvijay consulted him over some issues but they were not related to his marriage.

Meanwhile, Digvijay slammed social media by alleging that it has now become "anti-social media" as he was being targeted over his personal life.

Digvijay's wife, Asha Singh passed away in 2013 after battling with cancer.

67-year-old Digvijay's affair with much younger Amrita Rai, that was exposed during Lok Sabha elections, drew a lot of flak from all sections of the society.

It was also reported that both Digvijay and Rai's affair started after six months of his wife's death and they were even living in a live-in-relationship.

Even Digvijay's five children- four daughters and son Jaivardhan Singh were against their father's relationship.

Twitter was abuzz with news of the revelation of the affair between Singh, a former chief minister of Madhya Pradesh, and Rai, a Rajya Sabha TV anchor. Both accepted they were in a relationship and will marry soon.

Digvijaya Singh posted two tweets, acknowledging the relationship with Rai. "I have no hesitation in accepting my relationship with Amrita Rai. She and her husband have already filed a mutual consent divorce case."

"Once that is decided we would formalise it. But I do condemn encroachment in our private life," he posted.

Rai separately tweeted: "I have separated from my husband and we have filed a mutual consent divorce papers. After which I have decided to marry with Digvijaya Singh."
