The rumours were on Wednesday put to rest that Bharatiya Janata Party’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi’s wife Jashodaben was on ‘char dham’ pilgrimage after Narendra Modi accepted for the first time that he is married.
Jashodaben, who disappeared ever since Modi accepted her as his wife, exercised her franchise at a polling booth in Mehsana in Gujarat where voting is underway for the seven phase of the Lok Sabha elections.
Jashodaben has vanished from the scene after spotlight turned back on her when the Election Commission displayed Narendra Modi’s nomination form which revealed her name as his wife.
Reports, quoting some members of her family, also claimed that she has been whisked away to an undisclosed location as she anticipated attempts by the national media to reach her.
Jashodaben, 62, who is a highly religious lady and lives a quite life, had sometimes back told her colleagues that she wanted Narendra Modi to acknowledge her once as his wife.
Close relatives of Jashodaben even claim that the lady has been holding fast for some months as a penance to see her husband Modi becoming PM.
