After Rahul Gandhi attacked Narendra Modi over acknowledgement of his marital status, BJP today asked why an issue was being made out of it when the Gujarat Chief Minister has "never lied" on the matter and there was "no aggrieved party".       

"I want to tell Rahul Gandhi that he should read the affidavit carefully. Whatever information he (Modi) is giving are all correct information and he has never lied on this," BJP spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman said here.     

In an election meeting, Congress vice-president raised the issue of Modi's marriage and said while his party made claims of ensuring safety of women, it took several elections for its Prime Ministerial candidate to mention the name of his wife in the poll affidavit.         

Reacting to Gandhi's statement, she said, "Rahul should not make any statement hurriedly before going through the affidavit."        

When it was pointed out that women groups have also raised the issue of denial of rights to Modi's wife Jasodabehn for many years, she said, "Let's ask questions to those women groups. Are they trying to justify child marriage? Here is a case where both of them have very clearly come out to say what their position is. Modiji's brother has also explained it."       

She further said "the lady does not feel aggrieved here".       

Taking on women's groups, he said "where are these women rights groups. Should not they be attending to Mulayam Singh's comment rather than here where there is no aggrieved party."
