‘Please take some rest… your mother means our mother’ West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee urges PM Modi to take rest


Heeraba, mother of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, passed away on Friday morning at the age of 100. She passed away around 3.30 am. She was admitted earlier this week due to health concerns to the U N Mehta Institute of Cardiology and Research Centre in Ahmedabad.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi received a message of sympathy from West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who added, “Your mother means our mother.”

“Respected PM, today is a sad day for you personally and it’s a great loss of your personal life. I pray to God, may God give you strength and bless you so that you can love your mother with your action and activities. I convey my gratitude to you because you were supposed to come to West Bengal but because of the sad demise of your mother you couldn’t come but have joined us virtually.”


The Chief Minister also requested PM Modi to cut short the programme and to take rest as he had just come from the cremation of his mother.

“I don’t know how to give my condolences and messages to your family members and others because the mother is no substitute for any other. On behalf of the people of West Bengal, I thank you so much for giving us this opportunity. Your mother means our mother also. I remember my mother also. May god give you the strength to continue your work,” she added.
