Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in a tweet this morning, said that he skipped his Yoga regime today and went to meet his 97-year-old mother Hiraben Modi who lives with her younger son Pankaj Modi in the outskirts of Gandhinagar, Gujarat. But people on social media called him out for tweeting the information because meeting one’s mother ‘is not something to boast about’.

“Skipped Yoga & went to meet mother. Before dawn had breakfast with her. Was great spending time together,” he wrote.

In fact, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also hit out at the PM saying that he takes his mother’s blessings everyday but doesn’t talk about it on social media. “I stay with my mother. I take her blessings everyday but I don’t boast about it. I don’t make my mother stand in line for political gains. Hindu religion and Indian culture says you should make your aged mother and your wife stay with you. PM’s residence is big, make your heart bigger,” he wrote in Hindi.

While some users on the micro-blogging site accused Modi of ‘showing off’, some just made fun of it. Take a look.

PM Modi is currently in Gujarat to inaugurate an international exchange in GIFT city and lay the foundation stone of the redevelopment of Gandhinagar railway station.

      Bhartiya Danga Party PM and Gujrat Danga overseer Modi wants to tweet he ‘skipped yoga’ to meet his mother, Twitterati call it ‘show off’, yes Ofcourse but with a small caveat though, with a gun on people's head, after taking all their money and disposing of his own money. That's how he roll, so gangsta. PM Modi then wants to jump to a podium and do name calling and mudslinging. Yes Ofcourse but with a small caveat though, he want to do this with his signature bizzare hand gestures. Biggest name calla and biggest mud slinga. PM Modi then wants to pour cow mutra down people's throat and apply cow gober on people's face for best shade results. He then wants people to use only patanjali product, yes Ofcourse with a small caveat though, with a gun on people's head.

          Parents always shower blessings to their children for their good....but have no control on their actions. Only good actions and devotion to country by the child determines whether those blessings would work or not !

            Any day, Mother is more important than yoga.UNO should now declare 21st June as world mothers' day. The same social media which Modi used to his advantage in2014, is taking him to task for frivolous tweets of his. He is not as much concerned about his aged mom as he is about creating an image of himself. He has been resorting to such tweets earlier too yet remaining silent on many important national issues.

              There are real heroes who have sacrificed what not for their parents but they are unheard of because they are not conscious of their image. They dont keep records of every action they do. Whatever they do they do it w heartedly, selflessly, pionately and without any expectations (such as creating good image, pority, sympathy etc.,). We dont have to show it to the world the things we do for our parents. Just do it .
