Frogs wedding solemnized in Madhya Pradesh to appease rain god by the women and child welfare state minister Lalitha Yadav has become a problem for her. The wildlife lovers were angry with her. Scouts and Guides Animal and Birds, an animal rights organization from Haryana made a complaint to police. Police have booked a case against the minister under the Prevention of Cruelty towards Animals 1960 section3 IPC 429,428, 120B. If found guilty she may face a maximum of 3 years imprisonment.
She defended herself saying that she followed the tradition of celebrating frog weddings in several parts of India as a prayer to the rain god to bless them with rains for the good of the people. But the opposition blasted her for supporting blind beliefs. They said being a minister she should not have done this meaningless act.
