WHY HE CHOSE JAYA­PUR

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
