The wishes came pouring for the Prime Minister Modi who celebrated his 70th birthday recently.
Modi said that he is grateful for all the wishes from the people all around India.
“People from all over India, from all over the world have shared their kind wishes. I am grateful to each and every person who has greeted me. These greetings give me strength to serve and work towards improving the lives of my fellow citizens,” he tweeted.
“Since many have asked, what is it that I want for my birthday, here is what I seek right now: Keep wearing a mask and wear it properly. Follow social distancing. Remember ‘Do Gaj Ki Doori.’ Avoid crowded spaces. Improve your immunity. Let us make our planet healthy,” the PM tweeted.
This comes after a massive surge in the number of coronavirus cases.
The tally surged to 51 lakh cases on Thursday as the country saw a record spike of 97,894 fresh cases. Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh remain the worst-hit states.
