P Chidambaram from Tihar says ‘pleasantly surprised’ after he gets a birthday greeting letter from PM Modi

Chidambaram said that he was pleasantly surprised to receive the greetings from Modi

Former Union Minister P Chidambaram, who spent his birthday on 16th September inside Tihar Jail, received a surprise greeting from Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the occasion. The senior Congress leader’s Twitter handle, which is being operated by his family members, informed that PM Modi wished him on his 74th birthday by sending a letter to him.

The letter, written in Tamil, was sent to Chidambaram’s village address in Tamil Nadu, which in turn forwarded to him in Tihar Jail, which explains the delay of one week in receiving the letter.

The message of Modi in the letter roughly translates to, ‘I take pleasure in wishing you hearty congratulations on your birthday. I wish the almighty to bless you with good health and happiness and let you serve the people forever like you do today’.

Chidambaram said that he was pleasantly surprised to receive the greetings from Modi. The tweet posted on behalf of P Chidambaram said, Dear Mr. Prime Minister Modi, pleasantly surprised to receive your greetings on my birthday (sent to my village address and forwarded to me).

Chidambaram also tweeted, “as you have wished, I want to continue to serve the people. Unfortunately, your investigating agencies have prevented me from doing so”. In another tweet he said, “Once the present harassment ends, I shall be back among the people that both you and I are committed to serve.”

The former finance minister tweeted the messages both in English and Tamil. He is currently lodged in Tihar Jail after he was sent to judicial custody by a special CBI court in Delhi in the INX media case.
