New Delhi | In an unprecedented gesture, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has greeted Opposition Congress party’s President Sonia Gandhi on her 69th birthday. In his birthday greetings on twitter Wednesday, Modi wished her a long life and good health. “May almighty bless her with long life & good health,” Modi tweeted.
Modi’s greetings came even as the Congress party and the government locked in a bitter fight over a court summoning Sonia and her son Rahul Gandhi in the National Herald case.
Congress members yesterday staged protest in Parliament and took to streets alleging political vendetta by the BJP-led government on Opposition leaders.
The Delhi High Court Tuesday rejected the pleas of Sonia and Rahul for quashing the summons by another Delhi court against them in the National Herald case. The metropolitan magistrate’s court earlier allowed their exemption pleas for the day.
The court, however, directed them to appear in person on December 19.
