CHENNAI: Timely interference by his associate is what saved the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Dr. Subramanian Swamy, else he would have been a newlywed at 76.
The leader, who visibly has love for controversies, has become butt of joke after a video released by a news channel showed him almost tying the ‘Mangala Suthra’ around the neck of a bride at a wedding in Tamil Nadu.
The stirring social media star, Dr. Swamy was invited to a marriage while he was in his native state of Tamil Nadu. The BJP leader was asked to bless the couple where the elders offered him the Mangala Suthra asking him to touch that and bless the bride.
What turned as a shock for people there and later a joke on social media was when Dr. Swamy almost tied the Mangala Suthra around the neck of the bride. An attentive lady as seen in the video pulled the BJP man back and prevented him from being ‘married’ again.
The video on YouTube, that caught the epic but uproariously funny blooper has gone viral and is inviting serious jokes around the leader who reportedly mistook the Mangala Suthra as a small garland.
However, the leader realized the slip-up he almost did.
