Jashodaben files RTI request seeking details of her entitlement as PM’s wife
AHMEDABAD: Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s wife,
Jashodaben Modi, on Monday filed an application under the Right To Information
Act, seeking details of the official order under which she has been provided
security cover and what other “services” she is entitled to among other things.
One of the grounds cited for her concern is former
prime minister Indira Gandhi’s assassination by her personal security guards.
In her RTI plea dated November 24, sent to the
Superintendent of Police, Mehsana, Jashodaben, 62, a retired schoolteacher who
lives in Unjha town of Mehsana district, has listed 12 queries.
Most of her questions begin with, “Amo arajdar vada
pradhanna patni Jashodaben Modi Chhiye…” (I, the petitioner who is the Prime
Minister’s wife Jashodaben Modi…). In her RTI plea, Jashodaben has sought a
reply in the next 48 hours, with relevant documents, stating that the issues
concern her “life and death”.
