Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju was a happy parent when he visited his daughter's school for the first time to watch her performance.
"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 tweeted.

But it took his cute little daughter some effort to cajole and convince him.
"This is how my little daughter convinced me to attend her school's 'Grandparents Day' for the first time," Rijiju tweeted.

In the video, the Indian junior home minister's daughter is seen asking her father to come to school to watch her perform, "Papa, tomorrow is my Grandparent's Day. You must come tomorrow. Mama always comes to my school, sees the performance. She sees my dancing," Kiren Rijiju's daughter says.
"But you never ever come to my school. How can that be, Papa. My grandparents cannot come to Delhi as they live in a village far from Delhi," she says.
When Kiren Rijiju said that he is busy, then his daughter advised him to ask his boss to spare him to attend his daughter's school function.
"You have the office but just say to your boss that I have to come to my daughter's school. Then your boss can forgive you," the Indian home minister's daughter said.
