Vice-President and Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari today turns 80.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi wished Ansari, who was born in Kolkata, on Twitter.
Ansari became Vice President in 2007, and is serving his second consecutive term.
Only one other Indian has done that: Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishan, who was Vice-President from 1952 to 1962, when he became President.
Birthday greetings to our Vice President, Shri Hamid Ansari. I pray that he is blessed with a long and healthy life.
