The mood was sombre at the YMCA Club in Ahmedabad, the venue for Jay Shah's wedding. Even as early as 11.30 am in the morning the writing was on the wall as far as the Delhi election results were concerned, and a shadow had been cast over the marriage celebrations of Amit Shah's son. There were no firecrackers and the musical band left without playing their part in the function.
The BJP president chose to ignore the journalists waiting at the gate of the club, reports NDTV.
Starting with the 2014 general elections, Shah has been credited for many of the party's success stories; BJP has won a number of its state elections in recent months based on his strategies.
Did Shah deliberately plan his son's wedding to coincide with the declaration of the Delhi election results?
From BJP the big names attending the function included Rajnath Singh, Nitin Gadkari and Piyush Goyal. The guest list stretched up to a thousand; corporate bigwigs Mukesh Ambani and Gautam Adani were also present.
Ahmedabad and Delhi will host two reception parties planned by Amit Shah. They will be held on Thursday and Sunday respectively.
Amit Shah's son Jay is also the secretary of the Gujarat Cricket Association.
