PM Modi also asked about Bhuali Bhai’s well-being and health as he said that ‘you might have seen five generations in 106 years and since I have not seen you for many years so I called you’. He also sent his regards for the family.”

The Prime Minister spoke to the former MLA for two and a half minutes. The former MLA said “We are grateful to the Prime Minister for remembering us in this hour of crisis.”
