New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today gave his greetings to the President Ram Nath Kovind on his 71st birthday and wishes him all the health and blessings for life.
“Birthday wishes to Rashtrapati ji. May Almighty bless him with a long and healthy life devoted to the service of our nation. “Since his tenure began, Rashtrapati ji has endeared himself to the people of India through his simple and compassionate nature.
“I have always found Rashtrapati ji to be sensitive towards the aspirations of 125 crore Indians, especially the poor and marginalised,” the Prime Minister said in a statement.
In July, National Democratic Alliance (NDA) candidate Ram Nath Kovind was elected as the new President of India, securing a massive margin over his United Progressive Alliance (UPA) rival Meira Kumar in a straight fight.
President Kovind was born on October 1, 1945, in Paraukh village in Uttar Pradesh’s Kanpur Dehat district.
