PM Modi’s wife suspects assassination, files appeal


Ahmedabad: Four months after she was denied information on her security cover, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s wife Jashodaben has filed a second appeal under the Right to Information or RTI Act seeking details on the matter.

She had also demanded information about the laws and related provisions in the Indian Constitution about security cover given to the wife of prime minister.

In November 2014, she had filed an RTI application with Mehsana police seeking clarity on the security cover given to her and wanted to know what she is entitled to.

Jashodaben had also sought certified copies of the actual orders passed by the government with regard to the security cover given to her as per the protocol.

Jashodaben has noted that late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was killed by her own bodyguards and that she felt scared of her guards. She asked the government to make it compulsory for each guard to produce copy of deployment order.
