Naik, the BJP Member of Parliament from North Goa, took to Twitter to wish Shah, who turned 54 on Monday.

Chanakya is considered the pioneer in the field of political science and economics in India, and his work is thought of as an important precursor to classical economics.
Chanakya assisted the first Mauryan emperor Chandragupta in his rise to power. He is widely credited for having played an important role in the establishment of the Maurya Empire. Chanakya served as the chief advisor to both emperors Chandragupta and his son Bindusara.
