The Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi is leading from the front in pro­vid­ing a sta­ble, strong and sus­tain­able govern­ment. Here are some of the key-play­ers...

Naren­dra Modi Prime Min­is­ter of In­dia

Naren­dra Damodar­das Modi (born Septem­ber 17, 1950) In­dia’s 15th Prime Min­is­ter, is one of in­de­pen­dent In­dia’s most pop­u­lar lead­ers. A ‘trans­for­ma­tional leader’ known for de­liv­er­ing re­sults, he is an em­bod­i­ment of courage, con­vic­tion and com­pas­sion. His portfolios in­clude Prime Min­is­ter; Per­son­nel, Pub­lic Grievances and Pen­sions; Depart­ment of Atomic En­ergy, Depart­ment of Space; all im­por­tant pol­icy is­sues and all other portfolios not al­lo­cated to any Min­is­ter.

Born into a hum­ble fam­ily in Vad­na­gar, Gu­jarat, Modi has lived his life by the prin­ci­ple of An­ty­o­daya or ‘serv­ing the far­thest’.

Through his im­pec­ca­ble track record as a Chief Min­is­ter, Modi se­cured three con­sec­u­tive two-third ma­jor­ity man­dates for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Gu­jarat in 2003, 2007 and 2012 As­sem­bly elec­tions. And in 2014, people of In­dia have over­whelm­ingly re­posed their faith in him giv­ing him a his­tor­i­cally de­ci­sive man­date to take the na­tion for­ward.

In his over 12 years ten­ure as the Chief Min­is­ter of Gu­jarat, Modi brought about par­a­digm shift in the lives of the people in Gu­jarat by de­liv­er­ing ‘Pro-ac­tive Pro-people Good Gov­er­nance’. Gu­jarat has main­tained over 10 per cent GDP growth rate for over a decade now. He is now poised to do the same for the na­tion at large with the mantra ‘Min­i­mum Govern­ment – Max­i­mum Gov­er­nance’.

Modi has reached the pin­na­cle by sheer hard work, de­ter­mi­na­tion, ex­treme fo­cus and a strong char­ac­ter. The be­gin­nings have been hum­ble and his first brush with the RSS (Rashtriya Swayam­se­vak Sangh) was at the ten­der age of eight when he would at­tend the lo­cal youth meet­ings of the RSS. At the age of 20, he ar­rived in Ahmed­abad where he be­came a Pracharak in 1972, de­vot­ing full time to the RSS. In 1987, he joined the BJP and it was on Oc­to­ber 7, 2001, he was asked to take over as the Chief Min­is­ter of Gu­jarat. Modi, who started his jour­ney as a party worker, has risen to the top­most post in the coun­try be­cause of his al­most vir­tu­oso like or­gan­i­sa­tional sense and his keen abil­ity to de­con­struct and ef­fi­ciently con­struct any job given to him.
