He further added that during the gathering, PM Modi shared insights into his daily routine, exercise routine, foreign trips and his visit to Karachi. "We got to spend 45 minutes with him. We learnt so many inspiring things from him. He said he sleeps for 3.5 hours and does not eat after 6pm.”
Speaking to ANI, Murugan pointed out that the MPs hailed from various political parties and represented different regions across India.
