PM wishes Advani on birthday; says his contribution towards nation building is monumental

9

On Thursday Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi wished BJP veteran LK Advani on his birthday. PM Modi said that the contribution of this octogenarian leader towards nation building is monumental. Advani turned 91 today, shying just 9 years from hitting a century. He was born in 1927 in Karachi, now Pakistan.

Taking to Twitter, Narendra Modi wrote, “Advani Ji’s contribution towards India’s development is monumental. His ministerial tenures are applauded for futuristic decision making and people-friendly policies. His wisdom is admired across the political spectrum.”

PM also wrote that the party veteran’s impact on Indian politics is immense. “Selflessly and diligently, he built the @BJP4India and wonderfully mentored Karyakartas (workers),” he said.

However, former Karnataka Chief Minister, Siddarmaiah, took an indirect dig at PM Modi and his government over Advani’s birthday.

Siddarmaiah tweeted, “Warm Birthday wishes to senior @BJP4India leader Shri. L K Advani ji. May you be blessed with healthy & happy life. Your guidance is required in protecting our democracy which is in grave danger, than in Marg-Darshak Mandal which do not respect your experience & seniority.”
