Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s estranged wife expressed shock over remark of Madhya Pradesh governor Anandiben Patel given to a Gujarati daily. In her statement, Anandiben told a Gujarat daily that PM Modi is not married.
In her statement recorded in her brother’s phone, PM Modi’s wife Jashodaben told, “I am surprised over Anandiben telling the press that Narendra bhai was not married (to her). He has himself mentioned in his declaration while filing papers for Lok Sabha elections in 2004 that he is married and mentioned my name in it.”
Jashodaben added “It is very unbecoming of a well-educated woman (Anandiben, former Chief Minister of Gujarat) to speak like this of a teacher (Jashodaben). Not only this, her conduct has tarnished the image of the Prime Minister of India. He is very respectable for me, he is Ram for me.”
Talking to ANI, brother of Jashodaben Ashok Modi confirms ANI that she was Jashodaben talking in the video shared by him.
“We didn’t believe this when Anandiben’s statement came on social media… But this appeared on the front page of leading paper Divya Bhaskar on June 19. Now, this could not be wrong.”
“This is why we decided to issue a rejoinder. We together recorded a written statement that Jashodaben read out from our home cell phone,” Ashok Modi added.
