On the occasion of the 100th birthday of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mother, Heeraben, it was decided that a road in Gandhinagar would be named after her. Exclusive information received by India Today has revealed that the name has now been postponed after backlash.

Top sources claim that the prime minister’s family has never used his name. PM Modi’s family prefers to stay away from politics or the limelight.

PM Modi opposes such benefits for his family as well, sources added.

Meanwhile, top BJP brass said that while most of the roads and schemes in the country are in the names of Gandhi and Nehru, the party did not want any controversy or issues raised by the Opposition ahead of the Gujarat Assembly elections.

Speaking to India Today, Gandhinagar Mayor Hitesh Makwana said, “The name is postponed till the time being. There is no policy now to name the road. Once there is a policy, it can be done. When will it be done? I can not say for now.”

Pujya Hiraba Marg

Gandhinagar Mayor Hitesh Makwana had announced that an 80-metre road in Gandhinagar’s Raysan area would be named after PM Modi’s mother.

On June 15, the leader said Heeraben Modi (Hiraba) was entering her 100th year, and to mark the occasion, an 80-metre road from Raysan petrol pump would be named ‘Pujya Hiraba Marg’.

In an official release, the Mayor of Gandhinagar, Hitesh Makwana, said, “When Hiraba is entering her 100th year, we have decided to name an 80-metre-road in the Raysan area as Pujya Hiraba Marg so that the next generation takes inspiration from her life.”

“The objective is to keep her name alive forever and for future generations to learn the lessons of service,” the statement added.
