WHY HE CHOSE JAYAPUR
Modi said he chose Jayapur because it was the first village he had heard of soon after arriving in Varanasi. “I had read a news item about a few youths receiving burn injuries in a fire caused after a high tension wire fell on their house. That’s why I remembered it. I believe a relationship that is formed in adversity lasts forever. Nonetheless, I have been rather amused to hear various theories being offered for my opting for this village. Beyond what I told you nothing is right, it’s just fertile imagination,” he said.
