She hurriedly left her wedding at around 09:30 PM at night on Sunday and reached the center to collect her certificate. The photos of her collecting the certificate also went viral where she can be seen donning all the wedding finery and taking the certificate.
In her video, she can also be heard saying that "Jaimala chhod kar aayi hoon," meaning “I left my garland exchanging ceremony to come here.” However, after collecting the certificate and becoming a viral bride, Poonam returned to her wedding venue to complete the rest of the rituals and finally get married.
Poonam’s Response To The Media
Poonam told the TOI that "Jaimala chhod kar aayi hoon,""This is the best wedding gift for me as I am a BDC member now. I can never forget this moment as all the rituals were complete and just before the 'varmala' I was told that I had won the election by 31 votes,"
It was a pretty unusual incident but it was a pleasant sight to see the woman take a step and stand for her wishes and her priority. Her success and her growth were important to her, more than her own wedding which can be a subjective matter but since now Poonam is married, we believe everyone took her move positively and supported her throughout.
