GANDHI NAGAR (TIP): Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has sent a white sari for the mother of his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi. Obviously, it is a return gift from Pakistan Prime Minister whom Modi had gifted a shawl for his mother when he was in New Delhi to attend his swearing-in as Prime Minister of India.
Modi thanked Sharif in a tweet, June 5: “Nawaz Sharif ji has sent a wonderful white Sari for my Mother. I am really grateful to him & will send it to my Mother very soon.” Immediately after being sworn-in on May 26, Modi took to Twitter to share his informal conversation with his Pakistani counterpart. He said Sharif had talked about pictures of Modi’s mother offering him sweets. “The visuals touched both Nawaz Sharifji and his mother.
He (Sharif) told me after seeing the visuals, his mother got very emotional,” Modi had tweeted. He also tweeted, “Nawaz Sharif ji told me that he stays in Islamabad but goes to meet his Mother once in a week.” Modi had sent the shawl for Sharif’s mother with the Pakistani leader, whose daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif had tweeted, “Thank u v much PM @narendramodi for the beautiful shawl for my grandmother. My father personally delivered it to her.” A good beginning on human level.
