On his 72nd birthday, PM Narendra Modi launched Project Cheetah in Kuno National Park in Madhya Pradesh on Saturday.

As Prime Minister Narendra Modi turned 72 on Saturday, a host of events are being organised across the country to celebrate his birthday with fanfare. The PM was born in 1950 in Mehsana district of Gujarat.

The Bhartiya Janata Party’s Tamil Nadu unit is giving gold rings to all children born on the PM’s birthday at a hospital in Chennai. The Vanzara Samaj in Gujarat will light 72,000 earthen lamps in the shape of Modi’s face. The party is organising “unity in diversity” festivals, blood donation, tree-planting and cleanliness drives in different parts of India from September 17 to October 2.

Modi became the prime minister in 2014 after leading BJP to a spectacular win in the general elections. Since then, he has remained the most popular and powerful politician in the country by heralding a slew of welfare schemes and changing the social landscape of the country. After thumpingly winning the second term in 2019, he abolished Article 370 and paved the way for the construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya by expediting the judicial process.

A host of sportspersons have taken to Twitter to extend their wishes to the PM on his birthday.

“Happy Birthday to our Hon’ble PM Shri Narendra Modiji! Wishing you the best of health & happiness,” tweeted batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar.

Former Indian captain Virat Kohli also greeted the PM and wished him “strength, happiness and good health.”

Legendary woman cricketer Mithali Raj hailed PM Modi for his astute leadership and his amazing ability to connect with people from all walks of life.

The Bollywood fraternity also rallied behind the PM on this occasion and showered adulation on him.

Shah Rukh Khan led the tributes for the PM as he wrote, “Your dedication for the welfare of our country and its people is highly appreciated. May you have the strength and health to achieve all your goals. Take a day off and enjoy your Birthday, sir.”

“Your vision, your warmth, and your capacity to work. Just some of the many things that I find deeply inspiring. Happy Birthday Narendra Modiji. Wish you health, happiness and a glorious year ahead,” tweeted Akshay Kumar.

The prominent producer-director Karan Johar called him the “strongest pillar of our nation, leading our country to making an enduring mark on the world map.”

The ‘Queen’ of Bollywood Kangana Ranaut posted a long message on her Instagram account in praise of the PM. “Happy birthday honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi. From selling tea on railway platforms as a child to becoming the most powerful man on this planet, what an incredible journey,” she wrote.

Anil Kapoor lauded PM Modi as a “man who has put India on the world map in a way we could never have imagined.”

‘The Kashmir Files’ actor Anupam Kher penned a heartfelt note for the PM in Hindi wishing him a long life.

Ajay Devgn, Sunny Deol and Riteish Deshmukh are some of the other stars who posted greetings for the PM.
