PM Modi wishes Advani on his 92nd birthday

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday took to Twitter and extended his birthday greetings to Lal Krishna Advani and described him as a scholar, statesman and one of the most respected leaders.

“Scholar, statesman and one of the most respected leaders, India will always cherish the exceptional contribution of Shri Lal Krishna Advani Ji towards empowering our citizens. On his birthday, I convey my greetings to respected Advani Ji and pray for his long and healthy life,” he tweeted.

“Shri LK Advani Ji toiled for decades to give shape and strength to the @BJP4India. If over the years, our party has emerged as a dominant pole of Indian politics, it is because of leaders like Advani Ji and the selfless Karyakartas he groomed for decades,” Modi said in a follow-up tweet.

“For Advani Ji, public service has always been associated with values. Not once has he compromised on the core ideology. When it came to safeguarding our democracy, he was at the forefront. As a Minister, his administrative skills are universally lauded,” Modi added.

Advani began his political career as a volunteer of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh.

L.K Advani served as the Deputy Prime Minister of India from 2002 to 2004 under Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

In 2015 he was awarded the Padma Vibhushan, India’s second highest civilian honor
