PM Modi Meets His Mother Heeraben Seeks Her Blessing
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said his return to power was a huge responsibility
PM Modi, who had repeatedly claimed that the election, instead of an anti-incumbency, had a pro-incumbency wave. He referred to the matter again today, saying, "After the sixth phase of polling, I had said that it's 300 plus for us. When I said it, people mocked me. But the results are for everyone to see".
The BJP has won 303 seats in the Lok Sabha, way above 2014 score of 282 seats. After the fifth phase, party chief Amit Shah had claimed the party had crossed 300 seats.
PM Modi's 98-year-old mother Heeraben lives with her younger son Pankaj Modi.
The Prime Minister meets his mother regularly before important occasions such as elections, apart from routine visits despite his packed day plans.
In a tweet on Saturday, he said, "Will be going to Gujarat tomorrow evening, to seek blessings of my Mother. Day after tomorrow morning, I will be in Kashi to thank the people of this great land for reposing their faith in me."
In a recent interview with actor Akshay Kumar, PM Modi had said he had left home at a very young age. "But that doesn't mean I am not attached to my mother... My life has become such that the country is my family and that is how I operate," he had said.
