NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday greeted Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on his birthday, wishing him a long and happy life.

“Birthday wishes to Bihar CM @NitishKumar ji. May he be blessed with a long and healthy life,” the Prime Minister tweeted.

Congress leader Rajeev Shukla also wished the Chief Minister on Twitter.

Earlier, Nitish had said that Prime Minister Modi had failed in the "examination" of the General Budget for 2016-17, which was disappointing.

"They have been talking about development of farmers, agriculture, but nothing concrete has been seen. When he was talking about the farmers, we hoped that what they had promised during the election in 2014 that the minimum support price will be decided by adding 50 percent with it. This is the third year and they have not yet fulfilled it," Nitish told reporters.
