Launching an another attack on Narendra Modi, Delhi chief minister and Aam Aadmi Party convener Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday accused the PM of using his mother for political benefit, urged him to allow her to live at the Prime Minister’s residence.

Kejriwal’s comment came after PM Modi, who is in Gandhinagar for Vibrant Gujarat summit, skipped his yoga routine to met his mother Hiraba and later tweeted about it.

Kejriwal took to his Twitter handle to mock PM Modi and wrote:

“I keep my mother with me. Take her blessings every day but don’t broadcast it to the whole world. I do not make my mother stand in the queue for political benefit,” Kejriwal tweeted.


Earlier, PM Modi through his Twitter handle shared the news of meeting his mother and wrote:

“Skipped Yoga and went to meet mother. Before dawn had breakfast with her. Was great spending time together,” Modi tweeted.

The Prime Minister’s 97-year-old mother Heeraben lives with his brother in Gandhinagar.

Responding to Modi’s tweet, Kejriwal said the Prime Minister should let his mother live with him as his residence was “big enough”.

“According to Hindu religion and culture, one should keep his mother and wife with him. Prime Minister’s residence is quite big. Have a little heart,” Kejriwal told Modi.

The 8th edition of the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit is being held here from January 10 to 13 with the central focus on “Sustainable Economic and Social Development”.
