New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi shared an anecdote on social media remembering BJP leader and former External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on her 70th birth anniversary.
Remembered old incident
PM Modi wrote that 'Right now I am returning from Jalandhar after rallying. Today is Sushma ji's birth anniversary. I suddenly remembered a very old incident related to her, so thought I would share it with you all.
Story that happened twenty five years ago
He said that 'About twenty-five years ago, when I used to work for the organisation in BJP, Sushma ji was on an election tour in Gujarat. Vadnagar, which is my village, went there and met my mother too. At that time a daughter was born in our family to my nephew. Astrologers found her name after seeing the constellation and then the name was decided. The family members had also decided that they will do as they are saying.
But after meeting Sushma ji, my mother said that the daughter would be named Sushma. My mother is not very educated, but she is very modern in thoughts and I remember the way she gave judgement to everyone at that time. He further said that 'Tributes to Sushma ji on her birth anniversary today.'
Sushma Swaraj was born in 1952 in Ambala Cantt.
Former External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj was born on 14 February 1952 in Ambala Cantt. In her memory, the Government of India changed the name of 'Pravasi Bhartiya Kendra' to 'Sushma Swaraj Bhawan'. Apart from this, the name of the Foreign Service Institute was changed to Sushma Swaraj Institute of Foreign Service. Both these institutions are located in the national capital.
