Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday visited veteran BJP leader L K Advani’s residence to greet him on his 93rd birthday.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP President Jagat Prakash Nadda were also present to wish the BJP stalwart. PM Modi touched Advani’s feet and later stood besides him as he cut the cake, news agency PTI reported citing its sources.

Taking to Twitter, PM Modi said that it was always a delight to spend time with the senior BJP leader. “For Karyakartas like me, Advani Ji’s support and guidance remain invaluable. His contributions to nation building are immense,” he tweeted.

In another tweet in Hindi, Modi said, “Many congratulations to Shri LK Advani Ji, who played an important role in the development of the country and also took the party to the masses. He is an inspiration to millions of party workers as well as countrymen. I pray for his long life and healthy life.”

Advani is the longest-serving president of the BJP and is credited with charting the path for his party to grow from the margins of national politics to become its leading player, and then come to power in the 90s. He served as Deputy Prime Minister from 2002 to 2004 in the Atal Bihari Vajpayee-led NDA government.
