New Delhi: Jashodaben, a 62-year-old retired school teacher claims that she has married to Gujarat Chief Minister and BJP’s PM candidate Narendra Modi in the age of 17. However, according to Jashodaben, they have separated after three years of their marriage.


Speaking to English daily Indian Express, the 62-year-old claims that she does not feel bad, because she knows that he (Modi) is doing so due to destiny and bad times.

She, in the interview, says that she follows almost everything she gets in her hand related to the Gujarat CM.


When asked about her relationship with the BJP’s PM candidate, she replies, “We have never been in touch and we parted on good terms as there were never any fights between us. I will not make up things that are not true. In three years, we may have been together for all of three months. There has been no communication from his end to this day.”


According to Jashodaben, she has never gone to meet Modi after their separation. “I don’t think he will ever call me,” she tells reporter of the English daily.


She adds, “In whatever I say, I do not want it to harm him. I just wish that he progresses in whatever he does. I know he will become PM one day!”


When asked about her present legal relation status with Modi, she replies, “ If I was not his wife, would you have come to speak to me?”


According to report, Jashodbane claims that Modi told her once that “I will be travelling across the country and will go as and where I please; what will you do following me?”
