Just hours after news about Mahatma Gandhi’s grandson Kanubhai Gandhi living in an old age home started doing the rounds, Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke with him and directed Culture Minister Mahesh Sharma to meet and help Kanubhai out.


Acting quickly on PM’s order, the Culture Minister then visited  Kanubhai and spent about 45 minutes with him at Guru Vishram Vridh Ashram.


After PM Modi’s conversation with Kanubhai was over, he directed the authorities to ensure that his and his wife were taken care of and that the couple has a comfortable stay.


When Kanubhai was asked about his chat with PM Modi, he said that he was an old follower of Modi and that he (Modi) remembered all the help that he had extended to him.

He then added: “At that time, Sonia Gandhi was against both of us”.

But Mahesh Sharma was not the only visitor that Kanubhai had; AAP leader and Delhi’s SC/ST Welfare and Women and Child Welfare Minister Sandeep Kumar also visited him earlier in the day.

Meanwhile, Tushar Gandhi – Mahatma’s great grandson – is not too happy with what has been written about in the media.

He took to Twitter to give his version.
