In a press statement, the hospital said: “UN Mehta Institute of Cardiology & Research Centre, Ahmedabad hospital's spokesperson hereby informing that Hon'ble Prime Minister's Mother is admitted at UN Mehta Institute of Cardiology & Research Centre, Ahmedabad & her health condition is stable."
Bhupendra Patel, the chief minister of Gujarat, and K Kailashnathan, his chief principal secretary, arrived at the hospital to check on her condition.
Police sources claim that the Ahmedabad airport region has been designated a drone no-fly zone, and security has also been increased. When PM Modi was in Gujarat for the recent state elections, he recently paid a visit to his mother.
He had also visited her on her 99th birthday in June. To mark her centenary entry, PM Modi had written an emotional blog titled 'Mother'. The Prime Minister Modi said in his blog post that his mother taught him that it was possible to understand things without receiving a formal education. “My mother is as simple as she is extraordinary. Just like all mothers,” he said in the emotional post.
Meanwhile, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has extended full support to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and prayed for his mother Heeraben’s speedy recovery.
In a tweet, Rahul Gandhi said he supports the PM in this difficult time and prayed for a quick recovery for his mother. “The love between a mother and a son is eternal and priceless. Modi ji, my love and support is with you in this difficult time. I hope your mother gets well soon,” he tweeted in Hindi.
