Friday was a very busy day for Prime Minister Modi. After

inaugurating the Parliament building in Kabul and meeting Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif in Lahore, Modi landed in New Delhi and visited former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s house in the Capital to greet him on his 91st birthday.

Modi drove straight to 6A Krishna Menon Marg of Vajpayee’s residence from the airport after landing from Lahore where he had a brief stopover on his way back from visits to Russia and Afghanistan.

“Visited Atalji at his residence and conveyed birthday greetings to him,” Modi tweeted.

Earlier, Modi hailed Vajpayee as a leader who distinguished

himself in every role, while greeting him on his birthday.

“Birthday greetings to our beloved Atalji. We salute this great personality who provided exceptional leadership to India at a crucial time,” the PM had tweeted earlier in the day.
