Happy Birthday Rahul Gandhi! Wishes Pour In From Across The Nation

Congress party president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday marked his 48th birthday, the very first birthday after becoming the President of the Grand Old Party.

Over the past one year, Rahul Gandhi's presence in the nation's politics has grown multi-fold, and he has been credited with Opposition party victories in bypolls and state elections. Most specifically, the Congress party's victory in Karnataka, forming government in the state with a post-poll alliance with JD(S) despite the BJP having the single largest government.

Generally, Rahul Gandhi has celebrated his birthdays in a low key manner, last year spending the day with his grandmother in Italy. However, this year, in keeping with his position as the Congress Party President, he would be celebrating with Congress workers at the party headquarters in Delhi.

Celebrations outside the Congress headquarters began from the morning itself, and wishes poured in from across the nation. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has engaged in a battle of words with Rahul Gandhi often in the past, also took the occasion to wish him a Happy Birthday.
