If the grandchildren weren’t in the picture, we wouldn’t have begged her to return. We are ready to forgive her and take her back on certain conditions,” he said. rBJP BACKS HOBLErPANAJI: State BJP president and Rajya Sabha candidate Vinay Tendulkar came in support of his deputy who was booked for assault and dowry harassment based on a complaint by his daughter-in-law.
