Now, Jind women write letter to PM, ask Modi to live with his wife Jashodaben
New Delhi, Feb 3: It looks like Prime Minister Narendra Modi has tough time ahead. He may have routed his Opponents on political pitch, but it seems his family members themselves will push him to the wall.
As per a report, women from Jind district in Haryana have written a letter to PM, requesting him to live with his estranged wife, Jashodaben. The women of the district, hometown of the Union Minister Chaudhary Birender Singh have put up the argument that if PM has so much love for girl child, he should stay with his wife.
This has come to fore hours after the news that his younger brother Prahlad Modi will soon launch agitation against Government hit the headlines.
According to a report in Hindi daily, Women of Haryana village Palwa held a meeting under the chairmanship of Zila parishad Surender Devi and decided to send weekly letter to Prime Minister regarding the same.
Denouncing the practice of female foeticide, Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently said the discrimination against girls reflects "mental illness" and displays a mindset worse than that in the 18th century.
Launching ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao (save daughter, educate daughter)' scheme in Panipat district of Haryana, a state with one of the poorest sex ratio, Modi also slammed doctors indulging in female foeticide, saying their "sin" was a "betrayal" against society.
In keeping with the traditions of the Ghanchi caste, Modi's marriage was arranged by his parents while he was still a child. He was engaged at the age of 13 to Jashodaben Chimanlal.
After maintaining the secrecy of his marriage for quite a long time, Modi acknowledged the existence of his wife while filing his nomination for a parliamentary seat in the 2014 general elections.
