He waited for a clear trend to emerge before setting out to seek the blessings of his 94-year-old mother Hiraba.

Modi then left to meet his mother and seek her blessings. He had adhered to this tradition even after being elected as chief minister of the state. Otherwise, he goes to meet his mother twice a year to seek her blessings—once on his birthday and during Navratri.

Thus, after receiving indication of a clear mandate, Modi met his mother, who stays with his younger brother in Gandhinagar. While blessing him, she said she was confident that her son would serve the nation in the same way he had served Gujarat. 

“The way Gujarat has developed under my son, India too will progress under him as prime minister,’’ she said.

Modi subsequently went to meet party workers at the BJP office in Gandhinagar. He was given a rousing welcome by state party president R C Faldu, and thanked the activists for their dedication towards the party. 

Modi, however, avoided delivering any speech there, postponing it till Vadodara, where he had contested from and won with a record margin of 5.7 lakh votes.
