PM Modi’s mother Heeraben contributes Rs. 25,000 from personal savings to PM-CARES Fund


Guwahati: In a kind and heartwarming gesture, Heeraben Modi, mother of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has donated Rs 25,000 from her savings for PM-CARES fund as India battles Coronavirus.

It is to be noted that several celebrities, industrialists, sportspersons and many other leading personalities have generously contributed to the PM Cares Fund in the country’s battle against the  coronavirus pandemic.

PM’s mother, who resides near Gandhinagar, was seen beating a utensil in response to his son’s appeal to express gratitude to health professionals fighting coronavirus by clapping or by ringing bells for five minutes at 5 pm on Sunday – the day ”Janta Curfew” was announced for observation of social distancing measures to break the chain of the transmission of the deadly disease.

The video of Hiraba beating a plate while sitting on a chair went viral and the PM himself tweeted to acknowledge her participation and that of several other “mothers”.

On Saturday, PM Modi urged people to contribute to PM-CARES Funds to fight against the pandemic.
