Chennai: Former Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram, currently in Tihar jail in a case of alleged corruption related to the INX Media scam, on Tuesday expressed surprise and happiness on receiving birthday greetings from Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In a tweet posted on his official handle, Chidambaram said he was surprised to receive birthday greetings in Tamil from Modi.

In a letter addressed to Chidambaram's address in Sivaganga in Tamil Nadu, Modi said in Tamil, "I am happy to extend my heartfelt greetings on your birthday. May the Almighty give you good health and happiness and also bless you so that you can continue to serve the people."
