Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday wished BJP veteran Lal Krishna Advani on his 91st birthday. Modi admired Advani on the occasion, saying his contribution towards nation building is monumental. Advani was born on this day in 1927 in Karachi, now Pakistan.

“Advani Ji’s contribution towards India’s development is monumental. His ministerial tenures are applauded for futuristic decision making and people-friendly policies. His wisdom is admired across the political spectrum,” the prime minister wrote on Twitter.

“Selflessly and diligently, he built the @BJP4India and wonderfully mentored Karyakartas (workers),” the prime minister said in another tweet as he also appreciated the party veteran’s impact on Indian politics.

The PM arrived at the BJP veteran’s house today to greet him.

Former Karnataka Chief Minister, Siddarmaiah, on the other hand, took an indirect dig at PM Modi and his government over Advani’s birthday.

“Warm Birthday wishes to senior @BJP4India leader Shri. L K Advani ji. May you be blessed with healthy & happy life. Your guidance is required in protecting our democracy which is in grave danger, than in Marg-Darshak Mandal which do not respect your experience & seniority,” he tweeted.
