Tag: Narendra Modi

Narendra Damodardas Modi (born September 17, 1950) is the longest-serving chief minister of Gujarat. He has held the office since 2001 and has been successfully re-elected three times. Widely seen as a protégé of LK Advani, a senior BJP leader and its former president, Modi is known for his astute administrative skills and has a record for being incorruptible. He is credited with turning around Gujarat’s economy and making it an attractive investment destination for industrialists. Modi’s nemesis though has been the Gujarat riots that broke out after the Godhra train burning incident in 2002. Allegedly, while Hindu rioters went on a rampage against the Muslims, killing people and destroying property, the state administration under Modi’s charge turned a blind eye and failed to control the violence. Modi himself has been accused of watering down the seriousness of the situation, implicitly justifying the killings of Muslims, and failing to condemn the attacks on them.
