Modi wished Ghani on his birthday for the second time this year. Modi on Thursday, greeted Ghani in a tweet and said: "Happy Birthday President @ashrafghani...got the date right this time."
Modi had earlier greeted the Afghan President on Feb 12, sending out warm wishes for a long life and exceptional health [PM greets Afghan President 3 months ahead of birthday, Twitter reacts].
Ghani, politely replied to that tweet and said: "Greetings from Munich Mr PM. Although my birthday is on May 19, but I'd still like to thank you for your gracious words."
However, soon people pointed out the mistake and Modi's tweet became the butt of all jokes. Some even said that over-reliance on Google could have led to the mistake as Ghani's birth date is shown as February 12 on the search engine.
