Union Minister of Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju, who has to pass his days with a busy schedule, in order to balance his work and family, had to spare time for attending a function, invited not by any organisation or institution, but by his little daughter.
Kiren Rijiju, though he is the Union Minister of State for Home Affairs, also faced the problem like other parents do, as he was requested by his girl child to attend a function in her school.
According to reports, Rijiju’s daughter pleaded with him to attend the programme at her school and had a unique answer to convince him.
A report published on Tuesday by The Indian Express stated that the Lok Sabha MP from Arunachal Pradesh recently shared a photo on Twitter saying, “Finally, for the first time I could manage a little moment to attend my daughter’s ‘Grandparents Day’ in her school in the absence of any of her grandparents.”
Rijiju said his daughter was “too excited” to have her father accompany her.
The report stated that as the photo garnered a lot of attention, Rijiju also shared a video to let everyone know how his daughter had convinced him to go for the function. In the video, his daughter started with a complaint about how it’s always her mother who sees her dance performances, and never him.

“Mama always comes to my school, sees the performance… But you never ever come to my school. How can that be, papa?” she says.
Union Minister Rijiju, when tried to explain to her that he had a busy schedule, his daughter had a prompt reply: “You have office but just say to your boss that I have to come to my daughter’s school. Then your boss can forgive you.”
Twitterati loved her replies and said no one could turn down such a sweet request. While many suggested the minister should spend more time with his daughter, others started tagging his ‘boss’, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, to grant him a day off!
Rijiju finally decided to attend his daughter’s ‘Grandparents’ Day’ sparing some time.
Union Minister Rijiju tweeted: “Finally, for the first time I could manage a little moment to attend my daughter’s “Grandparents Day” in her school in the absence of any of her grandparents.”
