A Pakistani woman, who now lives in India, has claimed that she has been tying ‘rakhi’ to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for more than 20 years, reported news agency ANI. 

“I have been tying Rakhi to Narendra bhai for the last 22-23 years, excited to do it this time too,” Qamar Mohsin Shaikh told ANI.

Shaikh, who moved to India after marriage, also said that she received a call from PM Modi two days back.

“This time I thought PM Modi must be busy but two days back he called up, I was very happy to know that; started preparing for Raksha Bandhan,” she said. 

She said she tied her first ‘rakhi’ to the PM when he was a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) worker. 

“When I first tied 'rakhi' to Narendra bhai, he was a karyakarta (RSS worker) but with his sheer hard work and vision he has become the PM,” said Shaikh.
