Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mother, Heeraben Modi, was cremated in Gandhinagar after she breathed her last on early Friday morning. Prime Minister Modi flew to Ahmedabad after receiving the information about her mother’s demise and performed last rites. He, along with his brothers, consigned the mortal remains of his mother to fire.
Heeraben Modi, 99, passed away at around 3:30 am at the UN Mehta Institute of Cardiology and Research Centre in Ahmedabad, according to a bulletin from the hospital where she was receiving treatment for age-related complications. She was hospitalized on Wednesday after her health deteriorated.
Informing about her demise, PM Modi posted a heartfelt tweet early this morning, “A glorious century rests at the feet of God… In Maa, I have always felt that trinity, which contains the journey of an ascetic, the symbol of a selfless Karmayogi and a life committed to values.”
