New Delhi: Qamar Mohsin Shaikh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Pakistani-origin sister, sent a rakhi ahead of the Raksha Bandhan, and wrote a letter praying for his good health and long life.
Speaking to ANI, Qamar Mohsin Shaikh said she has made all preparations and expected to meet PM Modi this time.
"I hope he (PM Modi) will call me Delhi this time. I have done all the preparations. I made this rakhi by myself by using a Reshmi ribbon with embroidery design," she added.
She also wished him good luck for the 2024 election.
In the 2024 election, she said, "There is no doubt, he will be the PM again. He deserves this because he has those capabilities and I wish him to be PM of India every time," she added.
PM Modi's sister, Qamar Mohsin Shaikh sent a rakhi and a Raksha Bandhan card to him last year also.
Shaikh arrived in India from Pakistan after her marriage and has been living in India since. The Pakistani-origin woman claimed that she has been tying rakhi to Modi for more than 24-25 years now.
Cherishing her memory, Shaikh said that her first Raksha Bandhan with Modi was when he was an RSS worker.
Raksha Bandhan marks the bond of love between the siblings and will be celebrated on August 11.
Raksha Bandhan is celebrated on the full moon of the Savan month of the Hindu year. The month of Savan is considered an auspicious period among the Hindus and Lord Shiva is worshipped every Monday during this entire time.
