“Hausla Rakhna, wahi Aatankwadi ko Jawab Hai!” (Be strong and keep the faith, this is a fitting answer to the terrorists)…this is what Shri Narendra Modi told the wife of Shaheed Munna Srivastava over the telephone. Munna Srivastava was one of the people who lost his life during the cowardly attack during the Hunkaar Rally in Patna on 27th October 2013.
Shri Modi visited Patna on Saturday 2nd November 2013 to meet the families of those who lost their lives during the blast but could not visit the village of Munna Srivastava due to bad weather. He spoke to the late martyr’s wife on the phone.
Munna Srivastava’s wife told Narendra Modi that you need to bless her and her daughter. Speaking in Gujarati she told Narendra Modi, “Tame Mara Dhyaan Rakh Jo. Tame Mara Bapu Cho” (Please take care of us, we revere you). She said she would prepare Dhokla and Thepla for Modi ji when he visits next time.
Narendra Modi assured her she and her daughter will be taken care of in the wake of these hard times. He said that they are all a part of one family and prayed that God give strength in these hard times. He added that he wanted to come but due to weather he could not and that the Party workers will come and meet her. Modi ji also said that the sacrifice of her husband would not go in vain.
Shri Modi has Tweeted:
Spoke to wife of Shaheed Munna Srivastava on phone. We are all a part of one family & stand by them in this hour of grief.
