Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday conveyed his greetings to President Ram Nath Kovind on his 72nd birthday and wished him a blessed long healthy life.
“I have always found Rashtrapati ji to be sensitive towards the aspirations of 125 crore Indians, especially the poor and marginalised,” PM Modi tweeted.
“Birthday wishes to Rashtrapati ji. May Almighty bless him with a long and healthy life devoted to the service of our nation,” he said in another tweet.
PM Modi called the President “simple & compassionate,” adding that he was “sensitive towards the aspirations” of the Indian people.
President Kovind will inaugurate the newly-built Shirdi airport in Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra today. The event will be attended by Governor C. V. Rao, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and other top Central and state government officials.
The airport has been developed by the Maharashtra Airport Development Company (MADC) in Rahata sub-district, around 240 kms north-west of Mumbai, at a cost of nearly Rs 350 crore.
