Like every year, Qamar Mohsin Shaikh wishes the very best for her brother Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Rakha Bandhan being celebrated on Thursday.

Shaikh, the Pakistan origin woman married to an Indian, has been tying rakhi to Prime Minister Modi every year for more than two decades now.

“I get the opportunity to tie rakhi to elder brother once every year, I’m happy,” Shaikh said, according to news agency Asian News International (ANI).

“I pray that the next five years go so well for him that the whole world recognises the positive decisions he made. I pray for his good health,” she said.
