Meet Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann's wife Dr. Gurpreet Kaur
Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Bhagwant Mann got married to Dr. Gurpreet Kaur at his Chandigarh residence on Thursday. Delhi CM and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal and Rajya Sabha MP Raghav Chadha attended the private low-key ceremony. This is Mann's second marriage. He got divorced from his first wife Inderpreet Kaur in 2015, and they have two children.
Kaur belongs to Haryana's Pehowa
Kaur (32) belongs to the Pehowa area of Haryana's Kurukshetra district. Her father Inderjit Singh Natt is a farmer, while her mother is a homemaker. Her father was also reportedly the sarpanch of Madanpur village. She is the youngest of three sisters, and her siblings have settled abroad. She pursued her MBBS at Maharishi Markandeshwar University (MMU) in Mullana.
Mann's mother, sister wanted him to get remarried
Kaur, lovingly called "Gopi," had enrolled for MBBS in 2013 and completed it in 2018, PTI reported. Her neighbors in Pehowa said that they were thrilled that "Gopi Didi" was getting married, that too, to the CM. She was reportedly approached by Mann's mother and sister to marry the 48-year-old CM. Kaur and Mann are reportedly family friends and she often visited his house.

Prioritized politics over family
The comedian-turned-politician became a first-time Lok Sabha MP in 2014 from Punjab's Sangrur. A year later, he got divorced from his first wife. He had reportedly said that he wasn't able to give time to his family because of politics as he had chosen politics over his family. Notably, he again won the Lok Sabha polls from Sangrur in 2019.
