It is natural to ask – what is it that the Prime Minister of India likes to eat? Is he someone who relishes food.
An insight to this was given by Narendra Modi, who said:
“Those who work in public life, their lives are very irregular. So, if one wants to be active in public life, one needs to have a tough stomach.
For 35 years, working in various organizational capacities meant I had to travel all over the nation and I had to seek food and would eat whatever I got.I never asked people to make something special for me.
I like Khichdi very much. But then, I eat whatever I get.”
He added, “I want my health to be such that it wont be a burden for the nation. Till my last breath I want to remain a healthy human being.”
The role of the Prime Minister entails a lot of travelling and a lot of banquets to attend. He does enjoy the local vegetarian cuisines served in every banquet. Being a teetotaler, his glass invariably has water or a juice instead of any alcoholic beverage.
