New Delhi: Families of Indian groom Naresh Tekwani of Jodhpur and bride Priya Bachani from Karachi, whose marriage had almost come to a standstill over a visa issue, can finally breathe a sigh of relief.
The marriage plans of Naresh Tekwani and Priya Bachani, who got engaged 2 years back after their families met through a matrimony service, run by Naresh's father Kanhaiya Lal Tewanim, had come to a standstill after the Indian embassy in Pakistan did not grant visas to the bride's family and relatives which left both the parties tense about the marriage.
But, now, both the families can start preparing for the marriage as the bride has finally got a visa from the Indian embassy in Pakistan after the matter was bought to the concern of Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj. The couple is set to get hitched on November 7.
Earlier, the groom took up his problem with the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the micro blogging site Twitter. Sushma Swaraj immediately took to her Twitter handle to respond saying that she will get the visa arranged.
