LK Advani extends wishes to Narendra Modi on 64th birthday
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: A day after lauding Narendra Modi, who was anointed the party`s prime ministerial candidate despite his opposition, BJP patriarch LK Advani on Tuesday congratulated the Gujarat Chief Minister on the occasion of his 64th birthday.
Advani telephoned Modi and extended his wishes.
On Monday, Advani, a former deputy prime minister, showered praise on Modi in Chhattisgarh and said he has taken development to rural hinterland of Gujarat.
"My colleague Narendra Modi, who has been declared as PM candidate of the party, was the first leader who had taken development in rural areas of Gujarat. He ensured 24-hour power supply in each and every village in Gujarat from where I too belong as a member of Parliament," Advani, 85, had said amid applause in Chhattisgarh`s Korba town where he dedicated a 500 MW Hasdeo Thermal Power Expansion Project.
Though Advani opposed it, Modi was made the Bharatiya Janata Party`s prime ministerial candidate on September 13. An unhappy Advani did not attend the BJP parliamentary board meeting where Modi`s name was decided upon and wrote a scathing letter to party president Rajnath Singh expressing his displeasure and disappointment.
