Ahead of the Rakhi festival of this year, the women of the Gujarat’s BJP women wing made a unique gesture to celebrate Raksha Bandhan with Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi. They collected over one lakh rakhis from across the state and sent them to PM Modi on the auspicious occasion of Rakhi. Some even went on to deliver the rakhis personally and tied them on the wrist of the PM as a sign of love, goodwill and respect.
Jyoti Pandya, the party’s women wing President and Hemali Boghawala, the Vice President said that they had collected all these Rakhis from all over the state and they were sent to the official address of Mr. Modi’s official residence in Delhi. Women across the state readily gave many Rakhis, as they were seen as a brotherly gesture towards the Prime Minister of the country and it was an honour to send Rakhi to India to Narendra Modi.
These Rakhis were collected from Woman social workers and party leaders across the state. Many female craftswoman handmade them to their preferences and they were reminded of the times when PM Modi used to be the Chief Minister of Gujarat. During his Chief Ministerial stint in Gujarat, Modi used to organise Raksha Bandhan festival at his official residence in Gandhinagar, where woman from all walks of life used to tie Rakhis to him.
In the previous year, thousands of elderly widows who live in Varanasi and are confined to old age homes with no happiness or comforts to them, were given the privilege of tying Rakhis on the hands of Narendra Modi and Modi had said that he felt honoured and humbled to be able to be some part of their celebrations where they have so less reasons to celebrate. He further added that his mother herself being a widow for so long, he knows the importance of such an event.
