New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday wished Nationalist Congress Party chief (NCP) Sharad Pawar on his 80th birthday.
“Best wishes to Sharad Pawar Ji on his birthday. May Almighty bless with good health and a long life,” PM Modi wrote on Twitter.
Like many great leaders of the stature of Mahatma Gandhi, Pandit Nehru or Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Pawar enjoys a warm personal rapport with all the top political leaders, cutting across party lines.
Meanwhile, the NCP has also announced a week-long donation drive beginning December 13.
The Maharashtra government will launch a digital platform named for Pawar, ‘MahaSharad’, on Saturday. It is aimed at making available assistive devices to divyangs for free.
