PM Modi meets his mother in Gujarat, seeks her blessings


Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is in Gujarat for a day, on Saturday visited his mother Hiraba at Raisan village near Gandhinagar and sought her blessings before heading for a BJP meet.

Modi, who addressed a public rally in Deesa town of Banaskantha district earlier in the day, reached the residence of his brother Pankaj Modi in Raisan village near the state capital where his 97-year-old mother Hiraba stays.

“Before arriving for the party meeting at the BJP headquarters in Koba, which is around 7 kms from Raisan, the Prime Minister decided to meet his mother and take her blessings,” said a BJP leader.

“Modi ji spent around 20 minutes with his mother after arriving at Gandhinagar. He then came to the party headquarters for the meeting,” the leader said.

Earlier, during his Gujarat visit on 17 September, which was his 66th birthday, Modi had met Hiraba and took her blessings.
