On his birthday, I convey my greetings to respected Advani Ji and pray for his long and healthy life."
In another tweet, he said, "Shri LK Advani Ji toiled for decades to give shape and strength to the BJP. If over the years, our party has emerged as a dominant pole of Indian politics, it is because of leaders like Advani Ji and the selfless Karyakartas he groomed for decades."
