Rahul Gandhi tweeted.“Wishing Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji a happy birthday,”
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday wished Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his 70th birthday.
“Wishing Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji a happy birthday,” the Congress leader tweeted.
While wishing Modi, Kejriwal prayed for his long and healthy life.
“Narendra Modi wishing you a very happy birthday sir. I pray for your long and healthy life,” said Kejriwal.
The BJP has organised a “Seva Saptah” from September 14 to 20 coinciding with the Prime Minister’s birthday.
The party is undertaking social initiatives across the nation during this week-long event.
Wishes poured in from all corners of the world for Prime Minister Narendra Modi who turns 70 today. One of the first VIPs to wish Modi was Nepal Prime Minister KP Oli, who said that the two leaders will continue to work closely together towards strengthening relations between India and Nepal. The wishes come amid strained ties between the neighbours over a new Nepal map which shows Indian territories marked as its own and several other flashpoints. Meanwhile, the BJP will mark ‘Seva Saptah’, which began from September 14, across the country to pray for long life and good health of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “BJP has taken a very big decision and it is observing ‘Seva Saptah’ from September 14 to September 20. The Prime Minister’s birthday falls on September 17 and we will pray for his long life and good health so that he can continue to take decisions in the national interest,” party’s National Vice President and in-charge Jammu and Kashmir Avinash Rai Khanna said.
Dozens of prominent persons, including office-bearers of Bishnah-based social organisation Vikas Manch, several sarpanch and panch and former village representatives joined the party. Khanna said he is part of the four-member team constituted by the party to supervise the ‘Seva Saptah’ programme to reach out to the people and mitigate their problems. Referring to the abrogation of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status, he said the “historic day” was the happiest moment of his life because the entire nation waited for over 70 years for this “bold decision”. “BJP is the only party which is capable of taking decisions in the interest of the nation and its public…,” Khanna said.
