Amruta Fadnavis calls PM Modi “Father of nation”, lands in another controversy

Mumbai | Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis‘ wife Amruta Fadnavis has faced uproar over her calling Prime Minister Modi as “Father of the nation”.

“Wishing the Father of our Country @narendramodi ji a very Happy Birthday – who inspires us to work relentlessly towards the betterment of the society !” Ms Fadnavis tweeted, with hashtags such as #HappyBirthdayPM and #happybirthdaynarendramodi.

Mrs Fadnavis also shared a video of her singing at an NGO event.

However, many Twitter users came forward to point out that Mahatma Gandhi is the Father of the Nation, and not Prime Minister Modi.

“When did PM Modi become father of country and how? What betterment of society really happened now with unemployment rising like never before and with economy facing slowdown,” a Twitter user wrote.

On his birthday, PM Modi took part in various activities including a visit to the Statue of Unity and the Sardar Sarovar Dam on the Narmada river.
