Describing the interview as “scripted”, Jadeja posted a message in Gujarati on his 'X' account, saying: “The things mentioned in the dubious interview with Divya Bhaskar are meaningless and false… To malign my wife's image The attempt is inappropriate and condemnable. I also have a lot to say, but it would be better if I do not reveal those things publicly.
In the interview, Anirudh Singh held his daughter-in-law Rivaba responsible for creating a rift in the family. She also alleged that her son (Ravindra) has stopped all contact with her and her sister after marrying Rivaba.
Ravindra's father also claimed that he survives on his late wife's pension of Rs 20,000 and lives alone.
Rivaba, who is also a BJP MLA, was recently asked to react on the matter at a public event, which clearly irked her and she asked the reporter to contact her directly for her reaction.
“Why are we here today? If you want to know about it you can contact me directly,” Rivaba said in a video posted on Instagram by Zee 24 Kalak.
Jadeja, who is suffering from a hamstring injury, has returned to the Indian team for the last three Tests against England after missing the second match, but his participation is subject to medical clearance by the BCCI medical team.
