Mr. Modi interacted with about 15 beneficiaries of various government programs from Mysuru, Chamarajanagar, Mandya and Hassan.

Ambika, a resident of Basappana Doddi in the Hanur taluk of Chamarajanagar district, who had taken out a loan under the Indian government’s Mudra scheme to set up a sewing unit, was puzzled when Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked her if she could sew her kurta.

“Do you want to sew my kurta?” Mr Modi asked smiling on a lighter note after hearing Ms Ambika during an interaction he had with beneficiaries of various central government schemes in Mysuru on Monday. Ms Ambika, who was caught off guard, quickly pulled herself together and said she would be happy to sew the prime minister’s kurta.

Mrs. Ambika, who studied up to II PU, created the sewing unit with her husband in the village. Not expecting Mr Modi to be informal during the interaction, she remarked that she will not forget the day she came face to face with the country’s prime minister.

Mr Modi even surprised Yashodha Suresh, a resident of Uddinamalahosur in KR Pet taluk of Mandya district, when in another playful comment he asked her if she would prepare food for him if he came to her house.

Ms Suresh was a beneficiary of the Prime Minister’s Awas housing scheme. She said she was residing in an old dilapidated house, but has now moved to the new house allocated under the central government scheme.

Responding to questions from Mr Modi, she said her house had toilets, electricity and water. Mr Modi also asked if guests were coming to his new home and if she should prepare food for them. When she replied in the affirmative, the Prime Minister asked her if she would prepare food if he came to her house.

About 15 beneficiaries of various government programs hailing from Mysuru, Chamarajanagar, Mandya and Hassan interacted with the Prime Minister just before he addressed a public gathering at the grounds of Maharaja’s College.

Some of the beneficiaries said they had benefited from several central government programs. The National Horticulture Mission, Ayushman Bharat, Kissan Samman Nidhi, Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayi Yojane, MGNREGA, etc. were among the programs identified by recipients during their interaction with the Prime Minister.
