Kejriwal trolls PM Modi for tweeting about his mother, gets fact-checked on Twitter

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is on a two-day Gujarat visit for the Vibrant Summit, skipped his daily yoga session this morning to meet his mother Hiraba, who lives at Raisan village near Gandhinagar. Through a tweet, Modi said he went to meet his mother early this morning and had breakfast together. “Skipped Yoga & went to meet mother. Before dawn had breakfast with her. Was great spending time together,” tweeted Modi before heading to Mahatma Mandir to attend meetings with foreign heads of the state.

97-year-old Hiraba lives with Modi’s younger brother Pankaj Modi at Raisan village near the state capital. This led Delhi CM and PM Modi’s bete noir Arvind Kejriwal to claim that PM Modi was using his mother for political benefit. He tweeted: “I live with my mother, take her blessings everyday but don’t advertise it to the world. I also don’t make my mother stand in a bank queue for politics.”

However, the internet, and particularly Twitter never forgets and was on hand to remind Arvind Kejriwal, when had talked about his mother.
