NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi's sister Qamar Mohsin Shaikh tied him the rakhi on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan on Sunday. Qamar is PM Modi's rakhi sister and has been tying him the holy thread for the past 24 years.
Recalling her relationship with the PM, she said that he had not changed even a bit in the last 24 years. "I have known him since the time he was an RSS worker and have been tying him rakhi for past 24 years. There has been no difference in his behaviour. It is just that he has got busy so we get less time, apart from that everything else is same," Qamar said.
Qamar is a Pakistani-origin woman who came to India after marriage and has been living here since then.
"When I first tied rakhi to Narendra bhai, he was a karyakarta but with his sheer hard work and vision, he has become the PM," she had said last year after tying Rakhi to the PM.
Earlier in the day, several women and children tied rakhi to the PM at his residence in Delhi.
