A day after he urged Indians to bear with him in the fight against corruption, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 95-year-old mother Heeraben arrived at a bank in Gujarat's Gandhinagar to exchange banned currency notes.

In images that were seen to reinforce the prime minister's appeal to citizens forced to stand in long queues at banks and ATMs, his mother arrived in a wheelchair at a private bank near her home.

She waited her turn and was assisted by relatives as she walked in to swap Rs. 4,500 in denominations of Rs. 500.

Heeraben later posed with a brand new Rs. 2,000 note handed to her. She was almost mobbed by reporters as soon as she stepped out.

Heeraben, also known as Hiraba, lives with her younger son Pankaj Modi. The PM last visited her on his birthday on September 17.
