New Delhi: A day after Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi made a personal attack on newly appointed MoS HRD Shashi Tharoor, calling his wife Sunanda Pushkar a ‘50-crore girlfriend’ at an election rally in Himachal Pradesh, Tharoor tweeted, "My wife is worth a lot more than your imaginary 50 crores. She is priceless. But you need2be able2love some1 2understand that."
Earlier on Monday, Modi while addressing an election rally in Mandi had said that "Wah kya girlfriend hai. Apne kabhi dekha hai 50 crore ki girlfriend?" (What a girlfriend?. Have you ever seen a 50-crore girlfriend).”

"There was a Congress leader who was a minister. He was accused of amassing wealth from cricket. He had said in Parliament that he is not connected to the Rs 50 crore in the lady's name," Modi said, in an apparent attack on Tharoor's wife Sunanda Pushkar.      

"And then girlfriend becomes wife, we learn some time later...the issues are still not settled and he (Tharoor) is now made a minister," the Chief Minister had said.
