It is normal to find your soulmate on Facebook. But, we warn you, this is not your usual love story. 

In what could possibly be made into a romantic movie (more like a rom-com though), two people fell in love with each other. It was a comment in support of PM Narendra Modi that brought them together. To all the singles wondering how, here's what the guy posted on Twitter.



A staunch Modi supporter Jay Dave from Gujarat's Jamnagar recently got married to Alpika Pandey from Bengaluru. Interestingly, it was Jay's comment on Congress chief Rahul Gandhi's Facebook post that sowed the seeds of love.

As Alpika is also a Modi supporter, she liked his comment and they began dating after that.  Six months later they got married.

Thanking Modi, Jay (29) had then written on Twitter that he and Alpika (18) both support Modi as they want to 'live for India.' The couple could be seen in the post-wedding picture sporting a 'NaMo again' t-shirt. 

The tweet went viral and later it was removed from his profile. Claiming that he didn't delete the tweet intentionally, Jay posted a screenshot of his previous tweets and cleared the air saying he accidentally deleted his tweet and it has got nothing to do with trolls. 

Rubbishing Jay's tweet, Alpika took to Twitter to narrate her ordeal. In a series of tweets, Alpika claimed that he used her picture without her consent for his publicity.

She even accused him of abusing her physically and mentally, saying that she even attempted suicide.

"My loyalty for him was doubted to the extent that he clarified many times what was I doing even when I was in the bathroom," she wrote in a tweet. 

Speaking to Indiatimes, Alpika placed scores of allegations against Jay Dave and his family. "He won't allow me to speak to my parents and I had to text to my mother about my problems from the bathroom so that he won't know," she said.

Alpika said she underwent a lot of physical abuse and emotional trauma before she decided to leave Jay. She is right now staying with her parents in Bengaluru and she has been facing severe pressure from her in-laws to delete her tweets.  

Alpika also made it clear that she still is a Modi supporter and it has got nothing to do with her personal life.
