On tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was targetted by Delhi Chief Minister Aravind Kejriwal. The CM in his tweet said that the PM should make his wife and mother Heeraben stay with him.
"I stay with my mother. I take her blessings everyday but I don’t boast about it. I don’t make my mother stand in line for political gains. Hindu religion and Indian culture says you should make your aged mother and your wife stay with you. PM’s residence is big, make your heart bigger," Kejriwal said on Twitter.
Kejirwal's attack came in reference with an old photo of Modi's 97-year-old mother standing in a bank queue to deposit demonetized money.
Modi is presently on a two-day visit to Gujarat for the Vibrant Gujarat Summit. He skipped his daily yoga session on Tuesday morning just to meet his mother Heeraben, who lives at Raisan village near Gandhinagar.
In a tweet, Modi said "skipped yoga and went to meet mother. Before dawn had breakfast with her. Was great spending time together."
Heeraben lives with his younger brother Pankaj Modi at Raisan village near the state capital.
