I tried committing suicide; I was tortured by this BJP supporter and his family. No 'Achhe Din' For Namo Again Couple?

Just a few days ago, a tweet by young BJP supporter from Gujarat had gone viral. The youth, Jay Dave had posted a photo of him with a girl, both wearing Namo Again T-shirts claiming that he met her after after she ‘liked’ his comment supporting Modi on a  Rahul Gandhi’s Facebook page.

In a long tweet with a photo of two of them in orange T-shirt that read ‘Namo Again,’ Dave wrote, “We married because of you @narendramodi ji! I commented on @RahulGandhi’s FB page in ur support and this beautiful lady from his constituency liked it. We talked, met and found out that we both support you because we both want to live for India, so we decided to do it together :)”

His story made headlines on several websites including Zee-owned DNA, Huffpost India and Firstpost.

Almost after a month, the girl in the picture, Alpika Yadav, shared her side of the story on Twitter.

Now his wife took to Twitter to reveal a dark reality of their relationship.

In a series of tweets, Dave’s wife, Alpika Pandey, alleged how the man had been routinely torturing her ever since she tied the knot with him.

She wrote, “Here’s the other side of the story that you have been hearing about @thejaydave who met a girl on @facebook who liked one of his comments on @RahulGandhi’s page. They fell in love and got together as they both supported @narendramodi. Well, I am that girl.

“I am just 18 years old and he is 29 although his face doesn’t reflect so. First of all, he used my image without my knowledge and consent for his own benefit of publicity. He used this as a means to glorify his image in @BJP and social media. @CyberDost.”

Further, in a series of tweets, she made some serious allegations against her in-laws also, accusing them of torturing her physically and mentally

She continued, “He tortured me both mentally and physically till the extent that I tried committing suicide. His family supported him in doing so. I didn’t have the freedom to even step out of their house without a member accompanying me in the name of honour. @ndtv @GujaratPolice @MinistryWCD.”

‘He never respected my personal space’

Tagging National Commission for Women, Alpika alleged that her loyalty to the PM’s follower was doubted to the extent that she would be asked to explain her long stay inside the washroom. She wrote, “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. I had to show him each and everything I did on my phone or he would snatch my phone away. He never respected my personal space. @NCWIndia.”

In her concluding post, Alpika wrote, “I seriously doubt if his feelings were true for me. Is this what a #modibhakt does in the name of bhakti??”

Pandey’s parents didn’t support her marriage because she was young

Pandey told IndiaTimes that the harassment began just few days after marriage.

“He wouldn’t even allow me to speak to my parents. When I started facing the problems, I had to text my mom while I was inside the bathroom,” Pandey said.

She added that her parents didn’t support the marriage initially because she was very young, however, Jay pressurized her into it.

She returned to live with her parents in Bengaluru on Friday. Also, ever since she posted the story on Twitter, she said her in-laws have been pressurizing her to delete it.
