Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday took to Twitter and wished Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on his birthday. “I pray for his long life and good health,” tweeted Modi. Kejriwal, in a reply to this, tweeted, “Thank you so much sir.” Arvind Kejriwal, the two-time Delhi Chief Minister, is celebrating his 47th birthday on Tuesday.

Arvind Kejriwal has been locked in bitter political fight with the Centre and Modi over statehood for Delhi. Ever since the Aam Admi chief returned to power in Delhi after the brief 49-day rule, he is adamant on his demand for a full statehood for the National Capital. He has attacked PM Modi on several occasions accusing him of trying to muzzle the Delhi government through Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung.

PM Modi, during one of his election rallies in the past, also attacked Kejriwal and called him AK-49. In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, Kejriwal had fought against Narendra Modi from Varanasi, but eventually lost to the BJP’s PM candidate. Since then, both the leaders have been involved in a bitter turf war.

During his Independence Day speech on Monday, the Delhi chief minister reiterated his demand for Delhi’s full statehood. Kejriwal said Delhi had regressed to British times when people chose their representatives but the representatives had no powers.

    Narendra Modi greets Arvind Kejriwal on his birth day but Arvind Kejriwal is going to greet Nanrrednra Modi with stones. This is real difference between Matured Politician/ PM and Immature Politician/CM.Let us hope AK must have changed after attending 10-day Vipana. God please give Arvind Wisdom/Maturity in Indian Politics otherwise he will spoil name IIT Khadakpur from where he took his education.

            Kejriwal would have been happier if Modi's birthday greeting was accompanied by a simple gift - promise for no further harment and obstacles to AK's governance.
