KHARGONE: A Madhya Pradesh minister reached Khargone on Friday to take part in the wedding function of a woman whose house was looted during Ram Navami violence on April 10.
MP Agriculture minister Kamal Patel blessed Lakshmi Muchal and her groom Deepak Sanghvi, who had arrived from Gujarat, and gifted the newly wed couple gifts, including gold.
"I have not done anything extraordinary. I have fulfilled my promise to Lakshmi and her family who lost all the items they had bought for the wedding during the recent communal riots. I wanted to show the entire MP government, including Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, is with her and her family and those who have no support," Patel said.
