During his visit to Gujarat to officially open the “Atal Bridge” across the Sabarmati River in Ahmedabad, Prime Minister Narendra Modi saw his mother Heeraben Modi on Saturday at her home in Gandhinagar’s Raysan neighbourhood. He is on a two-day trip to his home state, where he intends to take in many more events.
After participating in the Khadi Utsav event in Ahmedabad, PM Modi met his mother in the late evening and spent approximately 30 minutes with her, according to his younger brother Pankaj Modi.
On June 18, the Prime Minister recently celebrated Hiraba Modi’s 100th birthday by meeting her. In a blog post he also made for her, he mentioned how meaningful 2022 was because it was the year his father would have been 100.
The Prime Minister spent the night in Raj Bhavan in Gandhinagar after his visit on Saturday. On Sunday, he will attend events in Gandhinagar and Kutch.
On Saturday, at the Khadi Utsav celebration in Ahmedabad, PM Modi opened the “Atal Bridge,” which is reserved for walkers and bikes to use. Later, he posted a few glances on social media. “Gandhinagar and Gujarat have also given a lot of love to Atal Ji. In 1996, Atal Ji won the Lok Sabha election from Gandhinagar with record votes. This bridge is a heartfelt tribute to him from the people here,” he said during the event.
The Prime Minister also discussed his relationship with the charkha (spinning wheel) and recalled that when he was a child, his mother used to work on one.
