by IANS |

Chandigarh, July 7 (IANS) Consul General of Canada in Chandigarh, Patrick Hebert, greeted Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, who is set to tie the knot with Gurpreet Kaur, a doctor, at his residence in Chandigarh on Thursday.

"Beautiful day for a wedding in #Chandigarh. Congratulations to Chief Minister @BhagwantMann and @DrGurpreetKaur_and best wishes for a happy life!" Hebert tweeted.

In a low-key arranged marriage ceremony with select invitees, comprising Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Mann, 48, will marry Gurpreet Kaur, who belongs to Pehowa in Haryana.

Mann has cancelled many official meetings planned earlier for the day.

Rajya Sabha member and AAP leader Raghav Chadha, who was among the first ones to arrive for the wedding, told the media, "I have come here with my mother...I wholeheartedly congratulate Mann Sahab and his family on this special occasion."

Kaur, an MBBS degree holder from Maharishi Markandeshwar University in Mullana in Ambala district, is the youngest of three sisters. The elder ones are settled in the US and Australia.

Just hours before tying the knot, Mann's would-be bride said the auspicious day has come.

"Din Shagna Da Chadyaa (the auspicious day has come (for her wedding)," would-be bride Gurpreet Kaur tweeted and also posted her photo.

Mann will get married a second time.

Only close family members, including Mann's mother, sister and a few relatives and friends, will attend the wedding.

Mann divorced his first wife Inderpreet Kaur in 2015. He has two children from that marriage -- daughter Seerat Kaur Mann (21) and son Dilshan Singh Mann (17). Both children attended Mann's swearing-in ceremony in March.
