Prime Minister Modi wishes long life to Sonia Gandhi on her birthday

News Agencies | Updated on: 9 December 2016, 10:24 IST

Prime Minister Narendra Modi greeted Congress president Sonia Gandhi on her birthday, on 9 December.

"Birthday wishes to Smt. Sonia Gandhi. May Almighty bless her with a long life filled with good health," he tweeted.

The Prime Minister's cheerful message comes despite the massive onslaught by the Congress, especially party vice president Rahul Gandhi, on the Centre over demonetisation.

On Thursday, Rahul Gandhi compared PM Modi to Roman emperor and then accused him of banning high-value notes to benefit a few people like e-wallet company Paytm.

"The idea behind a cashless economy is that a few people must get maximum benefits from these (cashless) transactions, this has damaged the nation," the Congress vice president said at an Opposition protest against the currency ban on the Parliament's premises.

"If they let me speak in the Lok Sabha I will expose this nexus. How PayTM is actually 'Pay to Modi'," Rahul Gandhi said, accusing the Prime Minister of having a nexus with corporates.
