This is the time Prime Minister Modi will be visiting his mother after getting a landslide mandate in 2019 Lok Sabha polls. Last time, it was during the third phase of the polling when PM Modi went to meet Heeraben. Modi reached his mother Heeraben’s residence in Gandhinagar in early morning hours. Media personnel captured the moment when PM reached his mother’s home before casting his vote in neighbouring Ahmedabad. After the brief meeting, the PM came out and walked the road in front of his mother’s house. A red gota chunri was also seen in his hands. The PM later cast his vote in Ranip after the visit.
A video tweeted by news agency showed PM Modi talking to his mother Heeraben. As part of tradition, Heeraben give the PM a coconut, a chunri and Rs 500 as neg. Reports say that the chuniri was from Mahakali Mandir of Pavagadh in Gujarat’s Champaner. Later, PM Modi touched her feet and left for voting.
He also met people in the neighbourhood. For many, this was a reminder of 2017, when PM had reached Ranip to cast his vote during the prestigious Gujarat Assembly Elections. At that time also, PM Modi had held a mini roadshow outside the polling booth in Ranip. He was seen waving and smiling to the people lined up to cast their votes. The prime minister walked a certain distance to greet people standing on both sides of the road outside the polling booth. Later, he stood on the foot-board of his car and waived to the crowd.
