Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh governor Anandiben Patel, a close associate of PM Narendra Modi when the latter was the Gujarat CM, has created a flutter when she declared him “unmarried” at an event in a MP village on Sunday.

A video clip covering her programme at an anganwadi centre in Timari in Harda district went viral on Monday, causing discomfiture in ruling BJP here.

 

She was heard saying the local anganwadi workers gathered on the occasion that Mr Modi has still “not married”.

“Unhone vivah nahin kiya hai yeh to pata hai naa aapko, Narendrbhai ne shaadi nahin ki hai. (You know, he has not married. Narendrabhai is unmarried),” she was heard telling them.

An onlooker had apparently taken the video in his cellphone camera. She added that Mr Modi understood the problems of women and children pre and post childbirth, despite being unmarried.
