Rahul, Modi Greet Kharge on Birthday
DECCAN CHRONICLE | DC Correspondent
Hyderabad: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi wished their party president Mallikarjun Kharge on his 81st birthday on Friday.
"A very happy birthday to Congress President, @Kharge ji, Your hard work and commitment is an inspiration to all of us. Wishing you much love and good health." he tweeted.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi too greeted Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on his 81st birthday.
"Best wishes to Shri Mallikarjun Kharge Ji on his birthday. May he be blessed with a long and healthy life," Modi tweeted.
The Congress leader thanked him for his wishes.
The Dalit leader from Karnataka has risen from a humble background to play an important role in several positions in his party and governments at his home state and the Centre.
He is the first non-Gandhi family member to be the Congress president in more than two decades as his party looks to him to steer it back to a position of strength following several electoral setbacks.
