On Friday, Rajya Sabha Chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar extended warm birthday greetings to Mallikarjun Kharge, the Leader of Opposition in the Upper House and President of the Congress party. During the proceedings of the Rajya Sabha, Dhankhar praised Kharge’s remarkable wit and humour, noting that it has the power to brighten even the most oppressive weather.

In his birthday message, Dhankhar highlighted Kharge’s distinguished political career, including his role as a Union Cabinet Minister, Member of Lok Sabha for two terms, Minister in the Government of Karnataka, and his service as a Member of the Karnataka Legislative Assembly for an impressive nine terms, spanning from 1972 to 2009.

Acknowledging the presence of Kharge’s humour in the Rajya Sabha, Dhankhar expressed his personal experience of appreciating the Leader of Opposition’s wit and stated that it has a unique ability to change the atmosphere.

Dhankhar also extended birthday wishes to Joginipally Santosh Kumar, a Member of the Rajya Sabha since April 2018.

In addition to Dhankhar’s wishes, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also took the opportunity to wish Mallikarjun Kharge on his birthday, praying for his well-being and longevity. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and AICC general secretary Priyanka Gandhi also joined in, expressing their heartfelt birthday wishes to Kharge and commending his hard work, commitment, and experience, which serve as an inspiration to Congress members across the country.
