BJP MLA questions Kohli's patriotism for marrying in Italy

Guna (Madhya Pradesh), Dec 20 2017: A BJP MLA from Madhya Pradesh questioned the patriotism of cricketer Virat Kohli for preferring Italy to India to get married to actor Anushka Sharma.

Panna Lal Shakya told a gathering: "Virat earned money in India... But he didn't find any place to marry in the country. Is Hindustan untouchable?... Lord Rama, Lord Krishna, Vikramaditya, Yudhishthir got married on this land. You all must have got married here. None of us goes to a foreign country to get married... (Kohli) earned money here and spent billions there (Italy)... (he) doesn't have any respect for the country. This proves he is not a patriot."
 
The Indian cricket captain and Anushka got married at a private ceremony in Tuscany, Italy, last week.
