Transport Minister Dayashankar Singh and former minister Swati Singh have now parted ways in the UP government. Dayashankar and Swati are divorced. The court has approved the divorce of both. The relationship which started 22 years ago on the foundation of love, came to an end.
Additional Chief Justice of the Family Court, Lucknow, Devendra Nath Singh took the decision on March 28, considering the marriage of both of them to be over on May 18, 2001. Although Dayashankar and Swati were living separately for the last several years.
According to the earlier records of the Family Court, Swati Singh had filed a case in the Family Court in Lucknow for divorce from Dayashankar Singh in the year 2012 due to family disputes. Accepting the matter for consideration, the court had issued a notice to Dayashankar Singh to present his case and file an objection.
In the year 2017, during the hearing of the case, the BJP gave Swati Singh the ticket for the assembly elections. Swati won the election and got a ministerial position in the government. After this, she did not appear in the court during the hearing. Due to Swati’s continuous non-appearance, the Additional Chief Justice of the Family Court dismissed her case in the year 2018 due to lack of lobbying.
