“My husband is like a booster dose for me, who has always motivated me. More than myself, it has been him who has motivated me to go ahead. The system of marriage in itself means that both husband and wife should stand and support each other. It is said that behind the success of every man, there is a woman. Similarly, it is also important that behind the success of every woman, there is her husband and brother,” Rivaba told ANI.

AAP condemns poster

The AAP Aadmi Party (AAP) which is giving a tough fight to BJP reacted sharply to the poster.

Taking to his official Twitter account, AAP MLA Balyan said, “Till yesterday, sportspersons were away from politics. Now openly doing politics. BJP did not spare any institution to destroy.”

Twitter unhappy, questions BCCI

The Twitter post has not gone down well with the Twitterati with many condemning the poster and questioning the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) if this was even allowed.

Jadeja’s sister reacts to Rivaba using children in her campaign

Ravindra Jadeja’s wife is not the only politician in the family. His sister, Naynaba Jadeja, a campaigner for the Congress party launched an attack on her sister-in-law claiming that Rivaba uses children to gain the sympathy card. Naynaba compared it to child labour.

Naynaba said that a complaint has been filed by Congress to the Election commission officer about the same.

At a press conference on Tuesday, Naynaba alleged, “She has kept Ravindra Jadeja’s name in the bracket and this is just to use the Jadeja surname. In the six years of her marriage, she did not get time to revise her name.”
