After Big Election Win, PM Narendra Modi Gets Grand Welcome In Ahmedabad


Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who will take oath on Thursday evening, went to Ahmedabad today to take the blessings of his mother. He also held a rally and addressed the people of his home state, which he ruled as a Chief Minister for 13 years. The Prime Minister, who landed in Ahmedabad this evening, got a grand welcome from the BJP workers.

The Prime Minister’s 98-year-old mother Heeraben, lives with her younger son Pankaj Modi.

PM Modi meets his mother regularly before important occasions such as elections, apart from routine visits despite his packed day plans.

In a tweet yesterday, he said, “Will be going to Gujarat tomorrow evening, to seek blessings of my Mother. Day after tomorrow morning, I will be in Kashi to thank the people of this great land for reposing their faith in me.”


In a recent interview with actor Akshay Kumar, PM Modi had said he had left home at a very young age. “But that doesn’t mean I am not attached to my mother…My life has become such that the country is my family and that is how I operate,” he had said.
