Modi wishes Rahul Gandhi on birthday

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi today extended greetings to Congress President Rahul Gandhi on the latter’s 49th birthday, wishing him “good health and a long life.”

"May he be blessed with good health and a long life," Modi wrote on Twitter this morning.

Rahul was also greeted by messages from well-wishers, party workers and supporters on social media resulting in #IAmRahulGandhi and #HappyBirthdayRahulGandhi becoming trending topics.

During a bitter parliamentary election campaign recently, Modi and Rahul had attacked each other repeatedly.

The Congress suffered a crushing defeat in the election, winning only 52 seats, four more than its all-time low of 44 in the previous 2014 national polls.

While Rahul lost the poll from the Nehru-Gandhi family stronghold of Amethi in Uttar Pradesh to BJP leader Smriti Irani, he won from Wayanad constituency in Kerala.
