Modi using mother for political benefit: Kejriwal

New Delhi: Accusing Prime Minister Narendra Modi of using his mother for political benefit, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday urged him to allow her to live at the Prime Minister's residence.

The tweet roughly translated to: "I keep my mother with me. Take her blessings every day but don't broadcast it to the whole world. I do not make my mother stand in the queue for political benefit."

The Aam Aadmi Party leader's remarks came after Modi visited Gandhinagar to meet his mother and later tweeted about it.

The prime minister's 97-year-old mother Heeraben lives with his brother in Gandhinagar.

Responding to Modi's tweet, Kejriwal said the prime minister should let his mother live with him as his residence was "big enough".

The tweet roughly translated to: "According to Hindu religion and culture, one should keep his mother and wife with him. Prime minister's residence is quite big. Have a little heart."
