Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has sent a white sari for the mother of his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi, who had gifted a shawl to the Pakistani leader's mother.

Immediately after being sworn-in on May 26, Modi took to Twitter to let others know about his informal conversation with his Pakistani counterpart. As per the tweets at that time, the two had "emotional" conversations.

Sharif, Modi tweeted, was touched by visuals of his mother offering him sweets.

"The visuals touched both Nawaz Sharifji and his mother. He (Sharif) told me after seeing the visuals, his mother got very emotional," Modi tweeted.

Sharif, according to Modi's tweets, visits his mother once a week.


Modi had sent a shawl for Sharif's mother after which the daughter of the Pakistani leader -Maryam Nawaz Sharif- tweeted, "Thank u v much PM @narendramodi for the beautiful shawl for my grandmother. My father personally delivered it to her."

Later in the evevning, Modi's mother Hiraben received the white sari gifted by Nawaz Sharif

Hiraben, who stays with Modi's younger brother Pankaj, showed to the media a green box, which contained the gift, marked with Pakistan's emblem and "Mother of the Prime Minister of India" written on it.

She opened the box and showed the message written inside - "With the compliments of Prime Minister of Pakistan." While opening the box, Hiraben kept smiling and looked at the 'white sari' gifted by Sharif for a while.

However, she did not speak to the media but apparently expressed her gratitude by folding hands.
