Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi after the latter tweeted saying he ‘skipped Yoga’ and met his mother for breakfast.

In two tweets posted in Hindi, Kejriwal said, “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.” The prime minister’s mother, rarely seen in public, was photographed when she visited a bank in Gandhinagar to deposit old bank notes post the Centre’s demonetisation move.

The prime minister had earlier today tweeted that he skipped Yoga to meet his mother for breakfast. Heeraben, PM Modi’s 97-year-old mother, stays with his brother Pankaj Modi on the outskirts of Gandhinagar, the capital of Gujarat.

PM Modi, who was in the city to inaugurate an international exchange in GIFT city and lay the foundation stone of the redevelopment of Gandhinagar railway station, might head back to Delhi today. PM Modi met his mother last in December, 2016 when he came to Gujarat to inaugurate a string of projects. He had then addressed a rally in Deesa in Banaskantha district of Gujarat.
