Prime Minister Narendra Modi's wife Jashodaben on Monday filed an RTI
application with Mehsana police to seek clarity on security cover given
to her at present and wanted to know what she is entitled to.
In her application, Jashodaben expressed unhappiness about the current
security set-up, where her guards travel in government vehicles like
car, while, despite being a PM's wife, she has to travel in public
Jashodaben noted that late Prime Minister Indira
Gandhi was killed by her own bodyguards and that she felt scared of her
guards. She asked the government to make it compulsory for each guard to
produce copy of deployment order.
She asked the government to
explain the definition of protocol and sought details about what is
included under it and what other benefits she is entitled for as per
Mehsana superintendent of police (SP) JR
Mothalia said that Jashodaben wants to know what are her rights as PM's
wife as far as the security aspect is concerned.
"Today, she came to our office and filed an RTI to know about her
rights as PM's wife with regard to security cover. We will give our
written reply to her in stipulated time," said Mothalia.
Jashodaben lives with her brother Ashok Modi at Unjha town of Mehsana
district. After Narendra Modi was sworn in as PM, she has been given
security by Mehasana police.
"We have deployed ten of our
policemen, including armed guards, for her security. They work in two
shifts, five each in one shift." said police inspector of Mehsana
Special Operations Group(SOG) JS Chavda.
In her application,
Jashodaben sought several documents from the police department related
to her security cover given as per the protocol, including the certified
copy of actual order passed by government about providing security.
She also wanted to know the laws and related provisions in Indian Constitution about security cover given to a PM's wife.
Modi has denied that he was ever married. His reason being the marriage, according to the caste and regional customs of the day-being betrothed to each other, as two children. His actual wedding took place at yet another child state, Jasodaben at 17 and Narendra being 18. A legal fine line. If Mode argues that his marriage was not consummated--no physical relations, let the court decide that. he could be a 'napunsak,' a chhakka,' So the problem can be checked by his medical examination, not by his affidavit.
RSS dogs are out to defend Modi's honor. what about Jasodaben's honor?
New Delhi: The relationship status of Prime Minister
Narendra Modi was always a matter of intense media speculation before
2014 parliamentary elections.
Before 2014 Lok Sabha elections,
the relationship status of Narendra Modi was not clear. Since he was a
RSS pracharak in the past, many people believed that Modi was single as
was the practice in RSS for its pracharakas.
It was in 2009 that
the ‘open’ magazine did a story on ‘Jashodaben’ claiming her to be the
wife of the then Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
Narendra Modi’s silence on the topic gave credence to the story but the status of Narendra Modi was still not clear.
Modi publically accepted his married status for the first time while
filing his nomination papers from Vadodara Lok Sabha constituency.
