Don’t celebrate my birthday; spend on J&K flood victims: Modi

Modi said he had heard that some friends and well-wishers were planning various programmes and events for his birthday

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today asked his supporters not to celebrate his birthday that falls on on September 17.

In a tweet, the Prime Minister said: “My humble request –  do not celebrate my birthday. Instead, dedicate yourselves towards relief work in J&K through your time and resources.”

Modi said he had heard that some friends and well-wishers were planning various programmes and events for his birthday.

“The need of the hour is to stand shoulder to shoulder with our sisters and brothers of Jammu and Kashmir,” the PM posted in another tweet.

Modi, who will be in Gujarat on September 17, will start his day by taking blessings of his 95-year-old mother Hiraba following which celebrations by state administration and BJP have been planned to mark his birthday.

He said that on September 17, Chinese President Xi Jinping will be in Gujarat. “We look forward to extending a warm welcome to him. But there will be no birthday celebrations.”
