"As Chairperson of the UPA, you have been crossing a number of road-blocks tactfully and facing many hurdles successfully... the nation looks up to you only, at this critical phase, to provide a secular and stable Government at the Centre,"  he said in his birthday greetings to the leader, who turns 67 on Sunday.

"Despite certain impediments", he said, the achievements of the Congress-led UPA government, in which his party is a key constituent, "have been quite impressive."

"The poor and middle classes of people of this country certainly realise your abiding interest in their livelihood and welfare," he said, and wished her a very long life of happiness and good health.
