“Jashodaben is not a terrorist, who would be required to stay concealed. She is not staying in my ashram,” Ramdev said while talking to reporters in Hoshiarpur on Thursday.

Ramdev also claimed Jashodaben has no qualms with the Gujarat Chief Minister.

“Jashodaben has no issues with Modi,” he said.

When asked whether Modi would keep Jashodaben at the Prime Minister’s residence if NDA forms government, Ramdev said it was his personal matter and he would not like to comment on it.

A leading news magazine had made a sensational claim that the Gujarat Chief Minister’s estranged wife was whisked away to Baba Ramdev’s yog ashram in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand.

The report had quoted several Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) sources as saying, “Soon after Modi acknowledged Jashodaben as his wife, Hindu activists and security professionals dressed as pilgrims arrived on her doorsteps in three white SUVs. They told her that her long-standing wish for a char dham yatra had come true.”

Sources in the report also revealed that the labourers at Ramdev’s ashram had spotted a lady arriving there in a white vehicle on April 13.

The magazine also quoted another source, who has good relations with Swami Swaroopanand Saraswati, the Shankracharya of Dwark Peeth, as saying,

“Jashodaben is protected by top-level security people with ties with the Gujarat security services. Perhaps, she does not even know that those with her are not pilgrims but people tasked with keeping her away from the public eye.”
