New Delhi/Ahmedabad: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi shared good wishes for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mother after reports of her being in hospital in Ahmedabad emerged.
“The love between a mother and a son is eternal and priceless. Modi ji, you have my love and support in this difficult time. I hope your mother gets well soon,” Mr Gandhi tweeted, in Hindi, for his prime political rival.
His sister and fellow Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi also wished for PM Modi’s mother’s speedy recovery and said, “We all are with him in this hour.”
PM Modi’s mother Heeraben Modi has been hospitalised after her health deteriorated Tuesday night. The PM left for Ahmedabad today afternoon.
Heeraben Modi, who turned 99 in June this year, is admitted to UN Mehta Institute of Cardiology and Research Centre. The nature of her illness is not known.
A bulletin from the hospital said her condition is stable.
