Haren Pandya was murdered soon after, which called out for political assassination. Ishrat Jahan’s case was also supposed to be a case of fake encounters under the Modi regime in Gujarat.

3. Personal Relations

Jashodaben, his wife, is living alone now, and social media seems to crop up this issue now and then. Narendra Modi news called Sunanda Pushkar a 50 crore girlfriend of Shashi Tharoor, and Twitter had a field day over it. Modi was initially banned from entering the US under the provision of the immigration act. It was lifted when he became the prime minister.
