A hilarious video showing BJP leader Dr Subramanian Swamy almost tying the knot himself while attending a wedding ceremony in Tirunelveli, Tamil Nadu has gone viral on social media.

Swamy, 75, who was asked to bless the couple and hand over the Mangalsutra to the groom, almost put it on the bride's neck when IAS officer VS Chandralekha stopped him.

Swamy has become the butt of jokes of people for his absent-mindedness as the incident's video soon went viral on social media.
