Who is Prahlad Modi?
Prahlad Modi is the Vice-President of the All India Fair Price Shop Dealers’ Federation (AIFPSDF) which was founded in the year 2001. Prahlad Modi is the fourth child of Damodardas Modi and Hira Ben Modi and he is also the younger brother of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Earlier Prahlad Modi used to run a Fair-price Shop in Gujrat and then he retired due to his old age, but in spite of retirement from his fair price shop, he continues to be active in Federation’s activities.
Viral Video of Prahlad Modi
A Video of Prahlad Modi is going viral on Social Media where he can be seen saying Don’t call Prime Minister Narendra Modi a tea seller, rather call him son of a tea seller Because our father sold tea.
Prahlad added that his father has brought up six of his children by selling tea on a small Stall. Prahlad said people are making a big mistake by calling the Prime Minister a ‘chai wala.’
But the video is being circulated on the Internet with a claim that this video is from an ongoing protest in Jantar Mantar, while in reality the Video was from Prahlad Modi’s visit to Ulhasnagar in Maharashtra for a protest against GST on 30th July 2021.
It was last year during his visit to Ulhasnagar when he made the shocking claim that Prime Minister Modi was never a tea seller.
