New Delhi: In a major faux pas, PM Narendra Modi tweeted the President of Afghanistan birthday wishes – some 96 days before the occasion.

PM Modi had greeted the Afghan leader through his twitter handle. He tweeted, “Happy Birthday @ashrafghani. Praying for your long life and exceptional health and a joyful journey ahead.”

In good spirit, the President of Afghanistan had accepted the wishes and even reminded the PM of the actual date of birthday, the tweet said, “@narendramodi Greetings from Munich Mr PM, although my birthday is on 19th May, but I’d still like to thank you for your gracious words.”
