Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is in Tashkent for the Shanghai Cooperation Organization meet, greeted Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh on his 82rd birthday on June 23. The birthday celebrations of the CM were observed with special prayers from party members, dance and distribution of sweets. However, Virbhadra did not miss the opportunity to open attack on opposition and centre government alleging them of political vendetta against him. He blamed central government for the CBI investigation being carried out against him to malign his image. He further emphasized that he has no personal differences with anyone, and the only difference is ideological.
