Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen wished birth centenary of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mother Heeraben Modi with a bouquet of 100 red roses.

PM Modi's mother celebrated her 100th birthday on Saturday (June 18.)

Momen, who reached New Delhi with a view to attending the 7th meeting of the Joint Consultative Commission (JCC) between two countries to be held today (Sunday), greeted Heeraben Modi on her birthday.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi reached the residence of his mother Heeraben Modi in Gandhinagar marking her birthday.

He dedicated a blog to his mother, underlining her sacrifices as well as the different facets of her life that "shaped" his mind, personality, and self-confidence.

"A mother not only gives birth to her children, but also shapes their mind, their personality, and their self-confidence.," Modi wrote.

"My Mother is as simple as she is extraordinary. Just like all mothers! As I write about my Mother, I am sure that many of you would relate to my description of her. While reading, you may even see your own mother’s image," he added.

Earlier, on September 17 last year, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina greeted her Indian counterpart Narendra Modi with a bouquet of 71 red roses on the occasion of his 71th birthday last year.
