MUMBAI (Web Desk) – Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi who has always been appreciated for being a tech-friendly PM but on Friday, a major faux pas left him red-faced on Twitter, where he has nearly 18 million followers.
According Indian Express, PM Modi took to Twitter to greet Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani on his birthday. He wished President Ghani a “long life and exceptional health and a joyful journey ahead”.
Happy birthday @ashrafghani. Praying for your long life & exceptional health and a joyful journey ahead.

But PM Modi ended up getting mocked on the platform when Ghani replied thanking the PM for his ‘gracious words’ although his birthday falls on May 19 and not February 12.
@narendramodi Greetings from Munich Mr. PM. Although, my Birthday is on 19th May, but I'd still like to thank you for your gracious words 🙂

The Afghan leader is currently in Munich to speak at the 2016 Security Conference on combating Islamic State.
