Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday in Gandhinagar performed the last rites of his mother, Heeraben Modi, who passed away this morning.
PM Modi rushed to the Gujarat capital early morning minutes after tweeting his personal loss at daybreak. Modi was seen touching his mother’s feet and paying floral tribute as he sat on his knees before Heera Ba, lying in state on the floor of her residence in Raysan.
The PM joined the funeral procession and carried the bier on his shoulder like any other son, walking barefoot with it as he carried the mortal remains to the crematorium for the last rites.
