K Srinivas, an IAS Officer, recalled a moment when Narendra Modi was supposed to inaugurate new Gujarat Secretariat building but instead invited his peon to inaugurate the building. Srinivas said that appreciating the efforts of the smallest man in nation building was in the heart of everything that Modi did.

In a video Srinivas narrated the entire instance how Narendra Modi asked him to find out and invite the oldest peon working in the secretariat to inaugurate the new building.

Secretariat’s senior most Class IV employee, Shri SavjibhaiDamor lit the ceremonial lamp on the occasion in the presence of Narendra Modi.

Srinivas said, “When he was the Chief Minister, we had built new set of buildings in Gujarat Secretariat. They were called SwarnimSankul I and II because Gujarat state had turned 50. When the question of inaugurating this new building came up, CM asked me to identify the name of the oldest peon who had been working here in the Gujarat Secretariat. Call him. He will be the one who will inaugurate this building. Hence, this old gentleman, who served in the secretariat cut the ribbon.”

Rajya Sabha MP and former Deputy Chief Minister of Gujarat, Shri Narhari Amin Ji spoke about Narendra Modi’s unique parting gift to his staff in Gujarat before he became the Prime Minister of India. He revealed how Narendra Modi donated the salary he had received as the CM of Gujarat and some other financial receipts.

Shri Narhari Amin Ji said that the entire surplus income which Narendra Modi had received, which was about Rs. 35 to 40 lakhs, he donated it among security officers, peons, cook and janitor who had worked with him for 12 years in Gujarat.

“For 70 years of independence, no political person, be it CM, MP, Union Minister or a corporation leader, while switching positions, nobody has given the surplus income to the staff,” Shri Narhari Amin Ji added further.
