Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mother Heeraben Modi today cast her ballot in Ahmedabad as the third phase of polling for the Lok Sabha elections kicked off on Tuesday. Heeraben cast her vote at a polling station in Raisan, Ahmedabad where polling got underway at 7 AM today.

The prime minister who was in his home state to cast his vote, paid a visit to his mother earlier this morning and sought her blessings at her residence in Gandhinagar. PM Modi also exercised his franchise in his home state at a polling booth in Ahmedabad’s Ranip.

The Prime Minister also exhorted voters to come out in large numbers to participate in the festival of democracy. The PM said that the voter ID card is much more powerful than an IED as he appealed the people to come out and vote.
