Mann and his ex-wife Inderpreet Kaur had got divorced in 2015. They have two children.

Little was known about the chief minister's relationship with Gurpreet Kaur. The announcement about the wedding was made just a day before.

“My phone is ringing incessantly (after the announcement)," Kaur's uncle Gurvinder Singh was quoted as saying by the Tribune. "I have received numerous congratulatory calls since the news of Gurpreet’s marriage to Punjab chief minister was shared on social media."

Mann became Punjab's chief minister in March after the Aam Aadmi Party won the state election -- securing  92 out of  117 seats to unseat Congress.

He won from the Dhuri seat by a margin of more than 58,000 votes.

Aam Aadmi Party convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will reportedly attend Mann's wedding in Chandigarh. Party leader Raghav Chadha was pictured arriving at the wedding venue today.
