Away from the media glare, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mother, Heeraben, has spent some “quality time” with her son at his official residence in New Delhi.

Modi tweeted on Sunday photographs with his mother, who visited him at 7 Race Course Road for the first time since he became the Prime Minister.

“My mother returns to Gujarat. Spent quality time with her after a long time & that too on her 1st visit to RCR,” the PM tweeted.

A source said Heeraben came to Delhi last week.

Even when he was the chief minister of Gujarat, Modi didn’t stay with his mother. Nonagenarian Heeraben lives with her youngest son, Pankaj, in Gujarat’s Gandhinagar.

On several occasions, Modi has mentioned how his mother has brought him up even as she struggled to make ends meet.

During his interaction at the Facebook headquarters in the US, Modi almost broke down while talking about her and how she worked as a domestic help to run the family.

Before coming to Delhi to take over the reigns as the PM, Modi visited his mother to seek blessings after the general elections in 2014.
