Qamar has been tying rakhi to the Prime Minister every Raksha Bandhan for the last 36 years. She claims to have first met Modi in Delhi when he was working as an RSS pracharak.
Qamar had then arrived from Pakistan after getting married to her husband in India. Recalling the support provided by Modi as an elder brother, Qamar had told news agency ANI, "His nature is very nice. He would often meet me and ask 'Kaisi ho behan."
"I get the opportunity to tie rakhi to elder brother once every year, I'm happy. I pray that the next 5 years go so well for him that the whole world recognizes the positive decisions he made. I pray for his good health," she further added.
