Modi visits mother on birthday
As Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi turned 63 on Tuesday, he, like every year, visited his mother Hira Ba here to seek her blessings.
"I came to seek my mother's blessings. There is no bigger privilege for me than that," Modi told reporters after his visit.
The Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP's) prime ministerial candidate also accepted flowers from people gathered outside his mother's house, and thanked everyone for their blessings.
"People have always supported me. I have full faith that people's blessings won't go waste. Their blessings will give me strength to go on with my work," he said.
