Meanwhile, PM Modi's mother Heeraben passed away on December 30, just two days after she was admitted to the UN Mehta hospital in Ahemdabad.
A glorious century rests at the feet of God, Prime Minister Modi said while informing about her demise.
The Prime Minister expressed his thoughts in a note that said, “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."
“When I met her on her 100th birthday, she said one thing, which is always remembered that is work with intelligence, live life with purity," PM Modi Tweeted.
Heeraben, commonly known as Heeraba, used to reside with PM Modi's younger brother Pankaj Modi in the Raysan hamlet outside of Gandhinagar.
During the majority of his trips to Gujarat, the Prime Minister used to stop at Raysan village to spend time with his mother.
