NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today extended greetings to Bhutan King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck on his 35th birthday and wished him a long and healthy life.       

"Greetings to the King of Bhutan, His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck on his birthday. May he be blessed with a long & healthy life," Modi tweeted.         Jigme Khesar is the fifth and current reigning Druk Gyalpo or "Dragon King" of the Kingdom of Bhutan.
