New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited his mother Heeraben Modi on Tuesday at her residence in Gandhinagar to seek her blessings on the occasion of his 69th birthday. The mother-son duo also had lunch together and enjoyed what appeared to be a Gujarati thali, along with rotis and salad.
Before PM Modi left the house, Heeraben gave Rs 501 to her son as a token of blessings.
The Prime Minister's convoy arrived at Heeraben's residence in the afternoon. Several people and his supporters lined-up outside the house to catch a glimpse of PM Modi.
