Chief minister Nitish Kumar also greeted his Gujarat counterpart and wished him a long life.
Asked About Giriraj Singh cutting a cake, Kumar said, "What is there to object about?..... I too take this opportunity to wish Modi a happy birthday and a long life.
"But my only regret is that Girirajji did not offer me a piece of cake," the chief minister chuckled.
The Animal Husbandry and Fisheries Minister had publicly backed Modi's candidature as the BJP's prime ministerial candidate in the next general elections and virtually risked his continuation in the council of ministers headed by Nitish Kumar, who has steadfastly opposed his Gujarat counterpart's primeministership.
