Narendra Modi

Narendra Damodardas Modi is the 15th Prime Minister of India and assumed office in May 2014. Prior to this, he served as the Chief Minister of Gujarat from 2001 to 2014 when he moved to Delhi. He has been an active member of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh in the past. Modi led the Bhartiya Janata Party to a massive victory for the first time in Lok Sabha elections in 2014. Modi was born in a lower income family of Vadnagar, Gujarat and left his family at an early age to work with RSS and later he joined politics. The current Prime Minister of India is very popular on Social Media and enjoys a huge following on various platforms like Twitter. His wax statue was installed at the Madame Tussaud's Museum in London. Modi's rise in the BJP has been phenomenal. Ensuring three consecutive election victories for the party in Gujarat, Modi launched himself on to the nation stage. Despite stiff opposition from party patriarch LK Advani, Modi was declared the prime ministerial candidate for Lok Sabha elections in 2014. However, his elevation for the top post exposed internal difference in the party. Riding on his wave, the BJP decimated the Congress-led UPA in 2014.
