Union Home Minister Amit Shah called Prime Minister Narendra Modi deeply sensitive and shared an anecdote that revealed that aspect of the PM's personality.
During the book launch of PM’s political journey titled ‘[email protected]: Dreams Meet Delivery’ in the national capital on Wednesday, Shah recalled that Modi had interrupted an important meeting to make sure the hungry peacock got food.
The bird was tapping the glass with its beak while a meeting was in session at the PM's office. After about a few minutes, PM Modi realised that the peacock was hungry and asked his staff to feed the bird.
“To think about a peacock while engaged in such a serious meeting shows how sensitive he is,” Shah said.
In 2020, a video of PM Modi feeding a peacock at his residence was widely shared on social media platforms.
At the event, Amit Shah heaped praise on the PM, calling him an efficient leader. He said despite Modi's lack of experience, the latter was made the CM of an earthquake-prone state which he ran efficiently and won several reelections.
"PM Modi didn't even have experience in running panchayat when he was made a CM to run an earthquake-marred state. Despite that, he won continuously and ran the state quite efficiently," Shah was quoted as saying by ANI.
