Narendra Modi’s wife Jashodaben happy that her husband will become PM of India

February 2, 2014 | 0

Narendra Modi’s wife Jashodaben Modi said that she does not feel bad that the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate cut her out of his life.  However, Narendra Modi has refrained from making any comment on the numerous reports that he had married Jashodaben, 62, in an arranged marriage, when she was 17 years old.

Jashodaben is now a retired school teacher. She says that she is still a huge Modi fan and that they split three years into their marriage, after which they were never in touch with each other.  Jashodaben however adds, “I know he will become PM one day.” Replying as to why Narendra Modi never acknowledged her as his wife, when he was in  limelight, she says, “I know he is doing due to destiny and bad times. In such situations, he has to say such things and also has to lie.”.
In a recent Modi biography written by Nilanjan Mukhopadhyay,  Narendra Modi had kept his marriage secret because he did not want it to be an obstacle in his rise in the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh(RSS) that forbids key party workers from marrying.  The author even added that the marriage was not consummated. In 2009, a magazine which tracked her said that Jashodaben refused to give interview saying that she was afraid of her ‘powerful’ husband.

Jashodaben now lives in monthly government pension of Rs. 140000 and leads a secluded life with her brother in Gujarat.  Jashodaben says, “We parted on good terms. We never had any fight.  We were together for all the three months. I read everything about him but I don’t think he will ever call me.”
