PM Narendra Modi meets his mother in Gandhinagar

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday met his mother Heeraben Modi at her residence in Gujarat’s capital city Gandhinagar.

Modi is currently in his home state for a two-day visit that will come to an end on Saturday (March 12). He addressed a mega Panchayat convention earlier in the day where he invoked Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Patel.

“Gujarat is the land of Bapu and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. Bapu always talked about rural development, self-reliant villages. Today, as we are marking ‘Amrit Mahotsav’, we must fulfil Bapu’s dream of Grameen Vikas,” the prime minister said.
