Assam Governor Jagdish Mukhi Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal, and state health minister Himanta Biswa Sharma on Tuesday extended their wishes to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his 69th birthday.

Taking to Twitter, the governor prayed for Modi's long and healthy life.

"On the occasion of your auspicious birthday, I wish you the best of luck I pray to almighty that he may keep you healthy, bright and give u a long life so that you can take the country to new heights," he tweeted.

Sonowal referred to Modi as the "architect of New India" whose leadership has shattered enemies.

"I join millions in wishing a very happy birthday to PM @narendramodi ji. The architect of #NewIndia, Modi ji's leadership has put India's assertive footprint in the global arena & shattered our enemies. We're honoured to be a part of this great transformation," he posted on Twitter.
