Leading by example, Prime Minister Narendra Modi‘s 97-year-old mother Heeraben visited a bank in Gujarat’s Gandhinagar just like other citizens to exchange her currency notes.

Accompanied by relatives, Hiraben, who was in a wheelchair, came to an Oriental Bank of Commerce branch at Raisan village this morning and got notes worth Rs 4500 exchanged. She came to the bank with Rs 500 notes, got the mandatory form filled, put her thumb impression on the form and exchanged her money.

Heeraben’s visit to the bank came on the seventh day since the government declared old Rs 500, Rs 1000 currency notes illegal, a decision that has triggered a massive chaos all over the country.

News agency IANS said Heeraben exchanged demonetised currency for Rs 4500 at the bank in the Gujarat capital. She was given a new Rs 2,000 note, five bills of Rs 100 and two bundles of Rs 10 each containing 100 notes each.

Wearing a white cotton sari, she later showed a new 2000 rupee note to the journalists and photographers, who had mobbed her.

SIMPLE LIFE

Hiraba lives with Prime Minister Modi’s younger brother Pankaj Modi in Raisan on the outskirts of Gandhinagar. The PM had visited his mother on September 17 this year to take her blessings on his 66th birthday.

Hiraba is known to lead a very simple life and travels in public transport.Last time when she visited Gandhinagar civil hospitalfor a regular check-up, she was seen going in an autorickshaw.

Modi had on November 8 announced scrapping of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes to curb black money menace.

PEOPLE INCONVENIENCED

The Modi government’s decision to demonetise 500 and 1000 rupee notes has evoked mixed responses. While some have hailed the decision, others have criticised the move for the inconvenience it has subjected the common man to.

This after people, especially those on daily wages, have been struggling to get their money exchanged despite standing in long queues at the banks and ATMs.

Last week, the BJP had attacked Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi for visiting a bank, calling it a photo op.
