Prime Minister Narendra Modi today wished Congress president Rahul Gandhi, wishing him a long and healthy life. Rahul Gandhi turns 48 today; it is his first birthday since taking charge of the Congress last December.
The PM’s message was similar to the one he posted last year.
“Birthday greetings to Congress President Shri @RahulGandhi. I pray for his long and healthy life,” PM Modi tweeted.
Rahul Gandhi had also wished PM Modi on his birthday on September 17 last year.
The PM’s message was posted hours after Rahul Gandhi targeted the Prime Minister over Arvind Kejriwal and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)’s protest at the Lieutenant Governor’s home in Delhi.
The Congress chief accused the PM of “turning a blind eye to anarchy”.
His tweets taking on the Prime Minister have been acerbic as the two have targeted each other in election campaigns over the past few months.
The PM’s birthday message did not include #HappyBirthdayRahulGandhi, which was used by several Congress leaders to wish their chief.
