Calling it a political move, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday attacked PM Narendra Modi for making his 96-year-old mother Heeraben Modi stand in a line in an Ahmedabad bank to swap her currency notes. He said it was not appropriate of the Prime Minister to do so.

“Modiji ne rajneeti ke liye maa ko line me laga theek nahi kiya. Kabhi line me lagna ho to main khud line me lagunga, maa ko line me nahi lagaunga (It wasn’t right of PM Modi to make his mother stand in a line for political means. If I ever have to stand in a line I will do so myself, and not make my mother do so),” the Delhi Chief Minister tweeted.

Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mother, Heeraben Modi, 96, visited a bank in Ahmedabad on Tuesday morning to swap her currency notes. After arriving at the bank in a wheelchair, she was helped inside by two ladies accompanying her. Heeraben exchanged Rs 4,500 for new currency notes, news agency ANI reported.

The prime minister’s move to scrap Rs 500, Rs 1000 notes came under strong criticism from the Opposition, with TMC leading the charge. Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has been a vocal critic of the currency scheme himself. Opposition parties have been chalking out a joint strategy to take on the Modi government during the Parliament Winter Session.

Congress, TMC, Left, JD(U) and RJD are among those planning to take the fight to the government in the House. PM Modi, however, assured BJP MPs that they have the people’s support and advised them against succumbing to pressure from the Opposition.

      Mr Kejriwal,lt;br/gt;Why don't you mind your tongue? I would love to see my mother stand UP, take care of herself and elimate fools like you. What is the purpose of you targeting our prime minister? What our Modi is doing is absolutely right. You are out of your mind or what? Back off, you and another waste body, Rahul are no way close to being Modi.

                Kejriwal is astute. He is trying to get share of publicity from publicity by BJP showing modi's mother. You would notice, you wont hear about Modi's wife.
