In a surprising turn of events, Amin Kagzi, an MLA and Congress candidate from the Kishanpole Vidhan Sabha constituency in Jaipur, has entered into a second marriage at the age of 50 without formally divorcing his first wife.
This revelation was made through Kagzi's election affidavit, where he provided information about both of his wives. He has identified his second wife as Monica Sharma Kagzi.
Amin Kagzi's first wife, Reshma, with whom he has four children, was previously disclosed in his affidavit during the 2018 legislative elections.
However, in the affidavit filed for the 2023 legislative elections, he has acknowledged his second wife, Monica Sharma Kagzi.
Kagzi's dual marriage disclosure has generated controversy and garnered significant attention as the election season unfolds in Rajasthan.
In this year's 2023 legislative elections nomination affidavit, Amin Kagzi has provided details about both of his wives. The affidavit specifically mentions his new wife, Monica Sharma Kagzi.
According to sources, Monica Sharma worked as a personal secretary at Amin Kagzi's office. Her association with Kagzi in a professional capacity is now under scrutiny following the disclosure of their marriage in the election affidavit.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Amin Kagzi, a prominent Rajasthan MLA, entered into a secret marriage with Monica, which remained largely undisclosed to the public. Only a select few were privy to this confidential union.
It has come to light that Amin Kagzi and Monica Sharma Kagzi also have a daughter together.
This revelation has raised questions and concerns about the ethical and legal aspects of holding a dual marriage while serving as an elected representative.
It remains to be seen how this information will impact Kagzi's political career and the forthcoming legislative elections in Jaipur.
The affidavit also reveals a significant decrease in Kagzi's assets over the past five years, with his total assets (both movable and immovable) decreasing from INR 7.82 crores in 2018 to INR 6.86 crores this year.
Both of Kagzi's wives, Reshma and Monica, are listed with their respective assets, with Reshma having INR 13.73 lakh and Monica having INR 12.73 lakh in movable assets. Additionally, both wives have holdings in terms of gold, cash, and bank deposits.
