LAHORE/NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has sent a white sari for the mother of his Indian counterpart Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Modi had gifted a shawl to Nawaz's mother when the Pakistani leader visited India last week. The Indian prime minister thanked Nawaz Sharif in a tweet today: "Nawaz Sharif ji has sent a wonderful white Sari for my mother. I am really grateful to him and will send it to my mother very soon."

Immediately after being sworn-in on May 26, Modi took to Twitter to share his informal conversation with Prime Minister Nawaz. He said he (Nawaz) had talked about pictures of Modi's mother offering him sweets. "The visuals touched both Nawaz Sharifji and his mother. He (Nawaz) told me after seeing the visuals, his mother got very emotional," Modi had tweeted.

He also tweeted, "Nawaz Sharif ji told me that he stays in Islamabad but goes to meet his mother once in a week." Modi had sent the shawl for Nawaz Sharif's mother with him, and his daughter Maryam Nawaz had tweeted, "thank you very much PM Narendra Modi for the beautiful shawl for my grandmother. My father personally delivered it to her."
