The economy might have hit a six-year low with GDP growth slipping to 4.5 per cent in July-September quarter, but that did not stop a business family in Jamnagar from showering lakhs of rupees at a wedding in the family.

Never had the residents of Chela village near Jamnagar seen so much money rain from the skies.


Rushirajsinh Mahendrasinh Jadeja aka Jayrajsinh from a contracting family in Jamnagar rained lakhs of rupees on the occasion of his marriage on Thursday. Rushiraj, who calls himself a social media influencer and blogger from Kunad village near Jamnagar, arrived in a helicopter to the bride’s place in Chela village, around 20 km from Jamnagar city.

Chopper charm for v illagers

According to Chela village sarpanch Rajendra Bhatti, “In a first for the region, the groom arrived at Chela village from Jamnagar in a helicopter. There was jubilation in the town when the villagers saw the sight of a chopper, as most of them were seeing a helicopter for the first time in their life.”

According to Bhatti, when the groom’s family took ‘barat’ to the marriage venue near Chela Mahajan Wadi, the groom’s friends and family members showered wads of currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 2,000 in the public. “I cannot say how many notes were showered, but they must be worth around Rs 35 lakh,” Bhatti confirmed.

Dharmendrasinh Jadeja, a villager who was present at the venue, said, “As per my estimate at least Rs 80 lakh worth of currency notes rained in Chela.”

In-charge police sub inspector of Chela village J D Parmar said, “I have heard about the incident, but do not have any more information about the wedding event.”

Jamnagar District Congress president J T Patel alleged that the groom’s family is closely associated with the BJP. “Obviously the money that was thrown was black money. Today when there are poor people who do not even get a square meal a day, it is a wrong precedent to throw lakhs of rupees over a celebration.”

The videos of the money shower have since gone viral on social media.

According to businessman Vishal Patel, Rushirajsinh’s family is in contracting business and he himself is a popular social media influencer/blogger with a huge fan base.

His Instagram page, where he describes himself as a lover of cars and horse riding has 1.46 lakh followers. His Insta posts displaying his filthy rich lifestyle along with his fleet of expensive cars and bikes attracts over 30,000 likes for each post.
