“Birthday greetings to our Prime Minister @narendramodi. Wish him a long life and many years of dedicated service to the people of the country,” Kovind tweeted.
Naidu, who is in Malta, called up Modi to wish him on his birthday, the Vice President Secretariat said.
“Warm Birthday wishes to Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. India is making rapid strides under his visionary leadership and taking its rightful place in the comity of nations. May he be blessed with a long and healthy life,” said Naidu’s Twitter handle.
Shah hailed Modi’s leadership, saying India under him has become synonymous with development and that he has infused energy into every section of society like never before.
India has a government under Modi, which is committed to the development of the poor, farmers and every section of society, the BJP chief said in a tweet.
Prime Minister Modi’s quality of recognising the importance of service and more importantly respecting those who put in their effort to serve others, is a mark of an excellent organisation and institution builder.
