Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday wished Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani on his 67th birthday, adding that he got the right date this time.
The Prime Minister tweeted:
Birthday wishes to Mizoram’s Chief Minister Mr. Lal Thanhawla on his birthday. Prayers for his long life & good health.

Earlier, on February 12, Prime Minister Modi had mistakenly wished the President on twitter and wished him a ‘long life and exceptional health and a joyful journey ahead’. The Prime Minister ended up getting mocked on the platform when Ghani replied thanking him for his ‘gracious words’ although his birthday falls on May 19 and not February 12.
@narendramodi Greetings from Munich Mr. PM. Although, my Birthday is on 19th May, but I’d still like to thank you for your gracious words
