Pakistani-origin woman Qamar Mohsin Shaikh says she has been tying rakhi to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for over 20 years.

Speaking to ANI in New Delhi, Qamar said, “I have been tying rakhi to Narendra bhai for the last 22-23 years, excited to do it this time too.”

Qamar, who came to India from Pakistan after her marriage and has been living here since then, also said that two days back, she received a call from Modi.

“This time I thought PM Modi must be busy but two days back he called, I was very happy to know that; started preparing for Raksha Bandhan,” she said.

Recollecting her memories, she said her first Raksha Bandhan with Modi was when he was a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) worker.

“When I first tied rakhi to Narendra bhai, he was a karyakarta but with his sheer hard work and vision, he has become the PM,” she said.
