New Delhi: "Distressed" by Narendra Modi's mother travelling in an auto rickshaw and living in a small room, a Congress leader today wrote to BJP's PM candidate volunteering to look after her as Modi had not provided her a "comfortable" life despite his "wealth" and success.
"I fail to understand how you could not provide a comfortable life for your mother who spent her entire life trying to ensure a brighter future for you."
"Your mother is like my mother. I have immense respect for her. I may not be as resourceful as you are, but I would request you to allow me to provide her all the necessary comforts of life according to my capacity," Alvi said in a letter to Modi.
Alvi lamented that Modi has been telling in his campaign all along that his mother raised him single-handedly in the most difficult conditions. "You mentioned how she had to work in the neighbouring households to ensure that she could look after you properly."
