New Delhi:

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 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.
