Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief minister Uddhav Thackeray greeted NCP chief Sharad Pawar on the occasion of his 79th birthday on Thursday.

The chief minister, in a message posted on micro-blogging site Twitter, extend his good wishes to Pawar and prayed for his long and healthy life.
He also paid tributes to late BJP leader Gopinath Munde, whose birth anniversary is being observed on Thursday.
The chief minister described Munde as a "people's leader and son of Marathawada". Munde died in June 2014 after his car met with a road accident in New Delhi.
The late BJP veteran's daughter Pankaja Munde, who was a Cabinet minister in the previous Devendra Fadnavis-led state government, lost the October 21 Assembly election from Parli to her estranged cousin Dhananjay Munde of the NCP.
