An autograph from Prime Minister Narendra Modi has turned West Bengal’s Mudi sisters into celebrities of their district.

When PM Modi visited the injured at Midnapore hospital, Rita asked him for an autograph. Modi not only give his autograph but also clicked a picture with them.

Curious villagers are visiting the sisters wanting to take a snap of PM Modi’s autograph.
