Kolkata: Condolences started pouring in from political circles of West Bengal soon after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mother Heera Ben passed away on Friday morning.

In a statement issued from her office, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee expressed her condolences over the demise. “She died at a hospital in Ahmedabad this morning. She was 100. She was the symbol of love, patience and faith. She was extremely affectionate towards children. I express my condolences to the Prime Minister,” she said in the message.
