Taking the next step in their much talked-about relationship, senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh married noted TV anchor Amrita Rai, the Indian Express reports.
The two, reportedly, took their wedding vows in Chennai last month.
While Digvijaya, a former chief minister of Madhya Pradesh, is currently in the US and has not given any confirmation about the same, Rajya Sabha TV anchor Rai confirmed the news on her Facebook page.
She not only shut her critics up by stating she is marrying for love, but also took the time to thank all her supporters:
The news about their relationship had broken out last year when a series of photographs leaked online, prompting speculations and much criticism for Singh and Rai.
But the two had boldly come out and confirmed their relationship on Twitter, shutting up their critics immediately.
I have no hesitation in accepting my relationship with Amrita Rai. She and her husband have already filed a mutual consent divorce case.

Amrita Rai’s erstwhile husband Anand Pradhan had then clarified his stand and put up a post on his social networking site stating that as a couple they had been going through a rough patch and it was their mutual decision to part ways amicably.
