“Scholar, statesman and one of the most respected leaders, India will always cherish the exceptional contribution of Shri Lal Krishna Advani Ji towards empowering our citizens. On his birthday, I convey my greetings to respected Advani Ji and pray for his long and healthy life,” Modi tweeted.

He said that LK Advani Ji toiled for decades to give shape and strength to the BJP.
