When Prime Minister Narendra Modi steps off the special aircraft at the Tribhuvan International Airport on Sunday morning to start his Nepal visit, he will be accompanied by a young man to whom he has been a guardian. And the PM will reunite him with his parents after more than a decade.
On Saturday, Modi tweeted: “On a personal note my Nepal visit is very special. Years ago I met a child from Nepal, Jeet Bahadur who did not know where he was headed… I started showing my concern for Jeet Bahadur. Gradually, he took interest in academics, sports & even learnt Gujarati…Thankfully, we were able to locate his parents. I am glad that tomorrow the parents would be reunited with their son”.
Modi apparently met Jeet Bahadur, a migrant, in 1998 before he was chief minister of Gujarat, and decided to take care of him. He helped him with his education through school and now Jeet is pursuing a BBA degree from Ganpat University in Mehsana. The University is run by Anil Patel, a former BJP minister in the Gujarat government.

With Modi so keen to reunite him with his family, an official of the Indian embassy in Kathmandu, Rabin Bhattacharya, was asked to trace Jeet’s family and bring them here for the reunion.
Mother Khagisara, elder brother Dasrath and sister Prem Kumari have reached the capital from Nwaalparasi, some 200 km away. They have been put up in a hotel as guests of the Indian embassy.
