Punjab Education Minister Harjot Singh Bains to wed IPS officer Jyoti Yadav
Punjab Education Minister Harjot Singh Bains will wed IPS officer Jyoti Yadav later this month, according to party sources.
Bains, a first-time AAP MLA from the Anandpur Sahib constituency in Punjab’s Rupnagar district, got engaged to Yadav recently, and the couple will tie the knot by the end of this month.
Bains, 32, an advocate by profession hailing from Gambhirpur village in Anandpur Sahib, was the president of the Aam Aadmi Party’s youth wing in Punjab and unsuccessfully contested the 2017 polls from the Sahnewal constituency.
Bains, who completed his BA LLB (Hons) from Panjab University in Chandigarh in 2014 and also earned a certificate in International Human Rights Law from the London School of Economics in 2018, was elected as a first-time legislator from the Anandpur Sahib Assembly constituency in 2022 Punjab Legislative Assembly election.
He is currently the education minister of Punjab in the cabinet of Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann’s AAP government in the state.

A resident of Haryana’s Gurugram, Jyoti Yadav, a Punjab-cadre IPS officer, currently posted as superintendent of police in Mansa district, was in the spotlight last year after a public argument with AAP MLA Rajinderpal Kaur Chhina, who accused the officer of conducting a search operation in her assembly area without informing her.
At the time, Yadav, then posted as the assistant commissioner of police in Ludhiana, had told the Ludhiana South MLA that she was directed to conduct the search operation against anti-social elements by the police commissioner.
AAP leaders in Punjab have been on a wedding spree since the party came to power in the state last year. CM Bhagwant Mann married Gurpreet Kaur while AAP MLAs Narinder Kaur Bharaj and Narinderpal Singh Sawana also tied the knot during this time.
Punjab Assembly Speaker Kultar Singh Sandhwan congratulated, the soon-to-be couple who are ‘going to start a new journey of their lives in (the) coming days’.
