New Delhi : Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh was criticised for marrying Amrita Rai, a television journalist. Many believed that Amrita Rai tied knot with Digvijay Singh, who was much elder to her, for fame and money. But Digvijay Singh silenced them saying that his wife Amrita Rai has given up her share of property and presented it to his son Jaiwardhan.
“My wife Amrita Rai has sacrificed her right in my family and earned property and given to my son Jaiwardhan. She stick to her words,” tweeted Digvijay Singh.
मेरी पत्नि अमृता राय ने मेरी पारिवारिक और अर्जित सम्पत्ति में अपना सम्पूर्ण अधिकार मेरे पुत्र जयवर्धन के हक़ में त्याग दिया। जो कहा सो किया!

Digvijay Singh’s tweet is being seen as a reply to those who have been making derogatory remarks against Amrita Rai saying she married to the Congress leader in pursuit of money.
Digvijay Singh married to Amrita Rai in September last year. “I would like to share with my friends that I and Digvijaya Singh have married in a solemn ceremony, as per the Hindu rites,” Amrita announced on social networking site Facebook. “I have married Digvijaya Singh for love. Therefore, I have already requested him to transfer all his property and belongings to his son and daughters.
I only want to embark on this new journey with him, working towards a dignified, professional career,” Amrita had said last year.
