Prime Minister Modi met his mother earlier this month, ahead of the second and final phase of Gujarat assembly election.

Heeraben Modi, prime minister Narendra Modi's mother, was admitted to Ahmedabad's UN Mehta Hospital on Wednesday afternoon, for what some reports indicate is a routine check-up. The hospital issued a statement confirming her admission to its Institute of Cardiology and Research Centre.

Modi travelled quickly to Ahmedabad and the hospital to be with his mother; news agency ANI shared a video of his convoy driving into the compound.

Reports also indicate security around the hospital has been tightened and that Gujarat chief minister Bhupendra Patel - who led the prime minister's Bharatiya Janata Party to a landslide victory in this month's election - is present.

Politicians across party lines have sent 'get well' messages to the PM and his mother, including Congress MP Rahul Gandhi, who tweeted 'the bond between a mother and her son is precious…' NCP MP Priyanka Chaturvedi also tweeted.

It is often said that the Gods are made according to the nature of their devotees. Similarly, we experience our mothers and their motherhood according to our own nature and mindset," the prime minister said.
