This move is seen as reciprocation to the shawl gifted by Modi to Sharif’s mother when he visited India to attend Modi’s swearing-in ceremony.

Modi, who received the present, expressed his gratitude to Sharif, and said he would hand it over to his mother soon.

"Nawaz Sharif ji has sent a wonderful white Sari for my Mother. I am really grateful to him & will send it to my Mother very soon," Modi tweeted.

Nawaz Sharif, along with other leaders of SAARC nations as well as Mauritius, had accepted Modi's invitation to attend his impressive swearing-in ceremony at Rashtrapati Bhavan May 26 and made a two-day visit to New Delhi.

Sharif’s daughter Maryam had also expressed gratitude towards Modi for gifting a beautiful shawl for her grandmother during his father’s short trip to India.
