PM Modi hailed Karachi-based Edhi founder Bilqis Bano Edhi, who turned out to be Gujarat-born, for taking care of Geeta with love and affection for so many years and invited her to visit her birth place in Bantwa in Junagadh along with her family.
    
Geeta warmly embraced the Prime Minister when she met him last evening, hours after returning from Pakistan. "It is truly wonderful to have you back home. Was truly a delight to spend time with you yesterday," PM Modi tweeted later.
    
He assured her that every effort would be made to trace her family and that she will be looked after well. "All of India will take care of you," PM Modi told her during meeting. Complimenting Bilqis Bano Edhi for taking care of Geeta with love and affection for so many years, the Prime Minister announced that India would give the Edhi Foundation Rs one crore as a token of appreciation, not just for taking care of Geeta, but also for the wonderful work that the Foundation has been doing, a PMO statement said.
    
"I don't think any amount of words are enough to thank the Edhi family for taking care of Geeta. They are apostles of kindness & compassion," PM Modi said in a tweet.
