Nawanshahr MLA Angad Singh got caught in a piquant situation as his wife Aditi Singh, who has been Congress MLA from Rae Bareilly Sadar seat in Uttar Pradesh, has joined the BJP on Wednesday.

Aditi Singh is the daughter of veteran leader Akhilesh Singh and had already been showing signs of rebellion against the party for the past two years. She has been openly rebelling against Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi and has even taken a stand against the Congress in the Lakhimpur Kheri incident of killing of four farmers.

With the political dissent happening at home, Aditi told media not to discuss her family matters. “I have my own ideology and my husband can have his independent inclination and thoughts. Let us not mix political and domestic affairs,” she told media today. Even her husband Angad maintains: “I cannot force my wife to have political opinion as mine. She has the right to maintain her stand.”
