On November 24, Jashodaben Modi had filed an application under the Right To Information Act, seeking details of the official order.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s wife Jashodaben has moved an appeal before the office of Mehsana Superintendent of Police under RTI provisions, after she was denied information about her entitlements as the PM’s spouse through an RTI application filed in November 2014.

The Public Information Officer (PIO) and Deputy Superintendent of Police, Bhakti Thakar, had sent a reply to Jashodaben, stating that the information sought by her could not be provided since it concerned the Local Intelligence Bureau, which was exempted from RTI provisions.

In her appeal before the first appellate authority of Mehsana district police, Jashodaben – a retired schoolteacher who lives in Unjha town of Mehsana district – has stated that she has moved the application after being “aggrieved” by the reply she got from the PIO.

In her appeal, she said the PIO denied her information on “fake reasons”.

“I, the applicant, have applied as the wife of the Prime Minister of India. Despite that, the name of my husband has not been written (in the reply)… and only my father’s name has been written. And this makes it clear that the Information Officer has a grievance towards me,” Jashodaben stated in her appeal.

On November 24, Jashodaben Modi had 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. She had listed 12 queries and one of the grounds cited for her concern was former prime minister Indira Gandhi’s assassination by her personal security guards.
