Birthdays are special and to prove that Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to Twitter to wish rival party's Vice-President Rahul Gandhi who turned 47 today. 

In a Twitter update, PM Modi who was also among the first ones, wished for Gandhi's long and healthy life. 

Rahul Gandhi who is currently on a vacation in Italy at his grandmother's house is known for aggressively targeting the PM for his policies, particularly through Twitter. 

"Na kisaano ka karza maaf karte hain, na bonus dete, bas goliyaan dete hain (They don't waive off loan of farmers. Neither do they give any bonus. They have only bullets to offer.)," Rahul Gandhi had said after being arrested while on his way to Mandsaur in Madhya Pradesh where six farmers were killed in police firing earlier this month, India Today reported.
