Gandhinagar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is on a two-day Gujarat visit for the Vibrant Summit, skipped his daily yoga session this morning to meet his mother Hiraba, who lives at Raisan village.
Through a tweet, Modi said he went to meet his mother early this morning and had breakfast together.
Skipped Yoga & went to meet mother. Before dawn had breakfast with her. Was great spending time together.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) January 10, 2017
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal used it as an opportunity to take a dig at Modi
"I live with my mother, take her blessings everyday but don't advertise it to the world. I also don't make my mother stand in a bank queue for politics," he tweeted.
मैं अपनी माँ के साथ रहता हूँ, रोज़ उनका आशीर्वाद लेता हूँ लेकिन ढिंढोरा नहीं पीटता। मैं माँ को राजनीति के लिए बैंक की लाइन में भी नहीं लगाता https://t.co/CT243GCiaC— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) January 10, 2017
Ninety seven-year-old Hiraba lives with Modi's younger brother Pankaj Modi at Raisan village near the state capital.
Modi is in Gujarat for the eighth edition of Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit at Mahatma Mandir here.
On Monday, he inaugurated redevelopment project of Gandhinagar Railway Station, Vibrant Gujarat Trade Show, international exchange at GIFT City and Nobel Prize Exhibition at Science City in Ahmedabad.
On Tuesday, he is scheduled to open the Vibrant Summit at around 3:30 PM.
