Greeting Congress President Sonia Gandhi on her birthday, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi on Wednesday said the UPA government has "set a role model" for coalition governments in Indian politics.

"I wish you many more happy returns of the day.The country has been making tremendous strides and the UPA government at the Centre has set a role model for a coalition government in Indian politics," Karunanidhi, whose party the DMK is a key component of the UPA dispensation, said.

In his birthday greetings, Karunanidhi said the Congress party under Gandhi's leadership had been winning many laurels.

Her concern for the common man, cutting across religious and regional barriers, was "really admirable," the DMK patriarch said and greeted her on behalf of the people of the state, wishing her a "very long life, full of happiness."
