The Maharashtra Chief Minister's wife, Amruta Fadnavis, faced criticism on social media for calling PM Modi as the "father of our country" on his 69th birthday.


Amruta Fadnavis, wife of Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, was among the thousands of people who wished Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his 69th birthday on Tuesday.
Wishing the Father of our Country @narendramodi ji a very Happy Birthday - who inspires us to work relentlessly towards the betterment of the society !" Ms Fadnavis tweeted, with hashtags such as #HappyBirthdayPM and #happybirthdaynarendramodi.

"When did PM Modi become father of country and how? What betterment of society really happened now with unemployment rising like never before and with economy facing slowdown," a Twitter user wrote.
