Gandhinagar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday met his mother Heeraben in Gandhinagar on the occasion of his 69th birthday. Earlier in the day, Modi, who arrived in Gujarat late
on Monday, inaugurated the Namami Devi Narmade Mahotsav, celebrating the overflowing of the Sardar Sarovar dam. After that event, Modi reached his mother's residence and had food with her.

TV visuals showed the PM paying obeisance with folded hands to his mother, who was seen blessing her now world- famous son. Narendra Modi was to meet his mother early on Tuesday before the Sardar Sarovar event but there was a change in the schedule.

Also, an ardent fan of Prime Minister Narendra Modi offered a gold crown weighing 1.25 kg to Lord Hanuman at Sankat Mochan Temple in Varanasi to mark Prime Minister Narender Modi's 69 th birthday. The fan identified as Arvind Singh made the offerings at the revered temple on Monday, a day before the Prime Minister's birthday.

Singh said that he had taken a pledge to offer the gold crown to Lord Hanuman if the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who represents Varanasi parliamentary constituency, returns to power at Centre for a consecutive second-term. "Ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, I took a vow to offer gold crown weighing 1.25 kg to Lord Hanuman if Modi ji formed the government for the second time," he told ANI.

"He is the one who is building the nation in a way that was not done in the last 75 years. So it was decided that this crown would be offered to Lord Hanuman a day before his birthday with faith that Prime Minister Modi's and India's future would shine like gold. It is a gift for him on behalf of Kashi people," a priest said.
