Prahlad Modi is one of the most talked about personalities of India. It is all because of the fact that he is the younger brother of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Prahlad is quite down to earth and a media shy person. He has been to the Prime Minister Official Residence only once and that’s too with mother and his family. The Prime Minister had recently called them to Delhi and requested them to stay for around two days.
Prahlad always try to keep himself away from media lime light. He fears that media can make even an innocent statement as an attack to the Union Government led by his brother. It had happened once when media reported his statement completely out of context that he considers Narendra Modi government a failure.
