Life Story

Narendra Modi is an India politician serving as the 14th and current Prime Minister of India since 2014. He was the Chief Minister of Gujarat from 2001 to 2014, and is the Member of Parliament for Varanasi. Modi is a member of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), a Hindu nationalist volunteer organisation. He is the first prime minister outside of the Indian National Congress to win two consecutive terms with a full majority, and the second one to complete five years in office after Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

Political Career

Gujrat Elections: In 2001, Keshubhai Patel’s health was failing and the BJP lost a few state assembly seats in by-elections. BJP leader L. K. Advani was concerned about Modi’s lack of experience in government, Modi declined an offer to be Patel’s deputy chief minister, telling Advani and Atal Bihari Vajpayee that he was “going to be fully responsible for Gujarat or not at all”. On 3 October 2001 he replaced Patel as Chief Minister of Gujarat, with the responsibility of preparing the BJP for the December 2002 elections. Modi was sworn in as Chief Minister on 7 October 2001 and entered the Gujarat state legislature on 24 February 2002 by winning a by-election to the Rajkot – II constituency, defeating Ashwin Mehta of the INC by 14,728 votes. He was the Chief Minister of Gujarat from 2001 to 2014.

Indian General Election: In September 2013 Modi was named the BJP’s candidate for prime minister in the 2014 Lok Sabha election. Several BJP leaders expressed opposition to Modi’s candidature, including BJP founding member L. K. Advani, who cited concern with leaders who were “concerned with their personal agendas”. Modi played a dominant role in the BJP’s election campaign. Several people who voted for the BJP stated that if Modi had not been the prime-ministerial candidate, they would have voted for another party. The focus on Modi as an individual was unusual for a BJP election campaign. The election was described as a referendum on Narendra Modi. Modi was sworn in as the Prime Minister of India on 26 May 2014. He was again sworn in as Prime minister on 30 May 2019.
