For the first time declaring himself as a married man Narendra Modi has reveale his wife’s name as Jashodaben in an affidavit submitted with his nomination from Vadodara

Narendra Modi, the Prime Ministerial nominee from Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has for the first time declared himself as a married man by revealing his wife’s name as Jashodaben in an affidavit filed before the Election Commission (EC).

In an affidavit submitted along with his nomination papers filed on Wednesday for Vadodara Lok Sabha seat, the 63-year-old Gujarat Chief Minister stated that he is married.

So far, Modi used to leave the column of spouse which is to be filled in an affidavit as blank. He had kept the column as blank in 2012 Assembly elections as well.

However, for the 2014 Lok Sabha election affidavit, in the column where he has to declare the assets in the name of his wife, Modi has written that he has no information on it.

The Vadodara district election authority had put the affidavit on the display board of the Collectorate at midnight last night.

Earlier, Congress had said that Modi should come clean on his marital status while filing nomination papers for the Lok Sabha elections.

The Vadodara LS seat which has been chosen by Modi from 26 constituencies of Gujarat is considered to be one of the safest seat.

Modi is also contesting election from Varanasi where he is challenging Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) candidate Arvind Kejriwal and Congress’ local MLA Ajay Rai.
