Political views :
Modiji is currently the face of the ruling party, BJP ( Bharatiya Janata Party).
Rise Of A PM :
The Modi era premiered after he represented himself as the enigmatic opponent against other political members. Along his part, he managed to offer a vision, a promise to boost up India’s lagging economy. People took it seriously. Back in 2012, India needed it the most. As a result, he has been thriving on the throne ever since.
Political History :
During graduation he joined Pro Hindu Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh ( RSS) in early ’70s. Becoming an active leader he set up an unit of RSS – Student wing. With time and constant dedication he rose to the highest of RSS hierarchy. Both the organization and himself benefited from this partnership.
He joined BJP in 1987. He was an instrumental member of the party and helped a lot to improve the image of BJP. Later in 1990, Modiji was one of very few politicians to collaborate with the coalition government.
Keeping up the thread, in 1995 his contributions helped a lot to secure most seats in state legislative assembly elections. Modi Was the first time in India, BJP formed a government structure. But unfortunately Modi very short lived it .
BJP national organization assigned Modi as secretary of BJP national organization, New Delhi branch. He got promoted to general secretary in 1998. But the game plot changed totally in 2001.
After total failure to respond and “quick disaster management” of Bhuj earthquake the chief minister Keshubhai patel lost his appeal. Modi being an opportunist got the chance, used his image and replaced him.
The later history is just history
He entered his first electoral contest in 2002, February. Using the “economic growth ” agenda, BJP won the assembly election again in 2007. With 117 seats total, BJP also won in the 2012 polls. Both the time, Modi was the winner of his area and made a grand entry to the prime minister’s biggest political democracy.
Success story :
Narendra Modi is not just an influential leader but also an efficient administrator. He has been accredited for the rapid growth of the state economy. It’s helped him to prove himself as a potential candidate for India’s next prime minister. Finally, in 2014, he was given the honor of representing BJP in the Lok Sabha election. Being a conqueror, he was sworn as Prime minister of India on 26th May of 2014.
Major Political Achievement :
1. Xi jinping and Barack Obama meeting :
After official handover, early in April of that year the Chinese prime minister Xi jinping visited Modi for a friendly session. This is the first time of Chinese interest in the last eight years.
Also after receiving a diplomatic visa he visited Barack Obama. This meeting strengthened India’s friendship with the biggest superpowers in the world. Surely this was a political win of this government.
3. Replacing 500 rupee notes to 1000 rupee note :
The basic motive was to stop black money endorsement. No doubt this tactic gained international attention and also economical fury. Initially GDP growth dropped a little bit but according to 2015 it was as high as 8.2%.
The dark part of the moon:
Even though these changes brought a tremendously positive response for BJP, the promised economic growth still could not be achieved. Disappointment filled through the mass. Also, during this time, Modi’s extreme Hinduism spread enough hate across the country.
- Hindu Muslim riot.
- Babri mosque case.
- 3.Increased interracial hatred.
- Overall non-progressive economy caused a significant fall down of the Modi empire.
In the 2018s election, they lost in all five states. Including Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chattisgarh, which are known as strongholds of BJP.
Congress party, their rival, won over all the five states in that contest. Following Jammu- Kashmir riot took another toll on their image.
But somehow, Modi’s image saved him and his party at that time. BJP won the 2019 election with a slight difference. They are to rule for the second time now.
Narendra Modi has been the other name of controversy. His full career has been through innumerable ups and downs. With every turn in his career, he created another controversy. Some of them are :
- 2002 Gujarat Riot: Narendra Modi Killed More than one thousand people in that communal riot. Modi was accused as a mastermind of it. Though after several trials, he was given a clean chit.
