Shivamogga: Prime minister Narendra Modi’s wife Jashodaben Modi visited the Ramachandrapura Mutt in Shivamogga district of Karnataka today to fulfill a vow of gratitude for his reelection and for the resolution of the Ram Mandir dispute at Ayodhya.
Jashodaben arrived at the Mutt at about 1.30 in the afternoon and presented a silver umbrella to the pontiff, Raghaveshwara Bharathi.
She was accompanied by Narendra Modi’s brother Ashok Modi and other relatives.
For about one and a half hour, the Modi family participated in the `Krishnaprasadam' programme along with other devotees.
Addressing the gathering in Gujarati, Jashadaben said she wanted the Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao scheme to be successful all over the country.
She also said pontiff Ragahveshwara Bharathi appeared to her like a young Shankaracharya.
