Islamabad, Oct 27: Celebrated social worker Abdul Sattar Edhi on Tuesday declined an offer of Rs.1 crore by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to his charity.

"Edhi has thanked Modi and politely declined to accept his announced financial help," the Dawn quoted Edhi Foundation spokesman Anwar Kazmi as saying.

Kazmi said Edhi's son, Faisal Edhi, will address the media in this regard in Karachi.

Modi on Monday announced the contribution to the charity after the return of hearing and speech impaired girl Geeta to India.

"What the Edhi family has done is too priceless to be measured but I am happy to announce a contribution of Rs.1 crore for their foundation," Modi had tweeted on Monday.
