Over three months after wishing him wrongly, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today ensured that he greeted Afghan President Ashraf Ghani on the correct date of his birthday.
“Happy Birthday President @ashrafghani...got the date right this time. :),” Modi tweeted.
Ghani responded by a tweet: “Bahut dhanyavaad Mr. PM. It’s always a delight to hear from such dear friend of mine and a strong supporter of our people.”
Modi had earlier committed a mistake when he wished the Afghan President wrongly on February 12.
“Happy birthday @ashrafghani. Praying for your long life & exceptional health and a joyful journey ahead,” the Prime Minister had tweeted on that day.
Ghani had then tweeted back: “Greetings from Munich Mr. PM. Although, my Birthday is on 19th May, but I’d still like to thank you for your gracious words :).”
The faux pas had led to trolling of the Prime Minister on the social media.
