Many newly married couples receive gold jewelry, tableware or even household appliances as gifts to start the new phase of their life together on a positive note. However, a mass wedding in Prayagraj recently saw couples receiving gifted ‘bulldozers’.

According to Amar Ujala, nine couples were married in this mass wedding organized by the Chaurasia Samaj. Everyone present at the ceremony was surprised to see the couples being gifted models of bulldozers by the organizers on their wedding day. According to a News18 report, the gift was a symbol that women in the state would be safe under the government led by Yogi Adityanath.

The brides thanked the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath, for this unique gift. Mayor of Prayagraj, Abhilasha Gupta Nandi said the bulldozer is a symbol of the BJP government in the state and added that all wrongdoers would be punished by the chief minister, according to media reports. Later, she posted an image of her at the mass wedding as well as the blood donation camp, hosted by Chaurasia Samaj.

Yogi Adityanath recently took office as Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh for a second consecutive term. During the run up to the Assembly elections, Adityanath earned the nickname “Baba Bulldozer” due to his strict stance against criminals and mafias in UP and the way his government deployed bulldozers to raze their ill-gotten properties.

However, this is not the first time that the state’s BJP government has gifted newly married couples with something that symbolizes the initiatives taken by their government.

In Prayagraj itself, 18 couples received gifted toilet seats in 2018 from the organizers of a mass wedding, according to Hindustan times. Organizers were inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Swacch Bharat Mission and decided to donate toilet seats to couples to help boost the initiative. The couples also received gifted saplings to plant outside their homes so they can help control air pollution.
