Narendra Modi Biography



नरेन्द्र दामोदरदास मोदी (गुजराती: નરેંદ્ર દામોદરદાસ મોદી; जन्म : 17 सितम्बर, 1950) सम्प्रति 7 अक्तूबर 2001 से अब तक लगातार गुजरात राज्य के मुख्यमन्त्री हैं। अक्तूबर 2001 में केशुभाई पटेल के इस्तीफे के बाद नरेन्द्र मोदी गुजरात के मुख्यमन्त्री बने थे। उनके नेतृत्व में भारतीय जनता पार्टी ने पहले दिसम्बर 2002 और उसके बाद दिसम्बर 2007 के विधानसभा चुनाव में भारी बहुमत हासिल किया। नरेन्द्र भाई मोदी विकास पुरुष के नाम से जाने जाते हैं और वर्तमान समय में देश के सबसे लोकप्रिय नेताओं में से एक हैं।


मोदी के नेतृत्व में 2012 में हुए गुजरात विधान सभा चुनाव में भारतीय जनता पार्टी ने स्पष्ट बहुमत प्राप्त किया। मोदी ने कांग्रेस पार्टी के तमाम आरोप-प्रत्यारोपों का मुँहतोड़ उत्तर देते हुए लगातार तीसरी बार जीत दर्ज़ की और चौथी बार गुजरात की गद्दी सम्हाली। अब भारत की आम जनता उन्हें भारत के भावी प्रधानमंत्री के रूप में देखना चाहती है।


बेहद साधारण परिवार में जन्में नरेन्द्र ने आजीवन अविवाहित रहकर देश-सेवा का व्रत लिया और विद्यार्थी जीवन से ही राष्ट्रीय स्वयंसेवक संघ से जुड़ गये। उन्होंने पहले अखिल भारतीय विद्यार्थी परिषद में जमकर काम किया फिर संघ के पूर्णकालिक प्रचारक बन गये। सोमनाथ से लेकर अयोध्या तक की रथ यात्रा में लालकृष्ण आडवाणी के सारथी रहे नरेन्द्र मोदी पहले भारतीय जनता पार्टी के राष्ट्रीय मन्त्री फिर महामन्त्री बनाये गये। केशुभाई पटेल के इस्तीफे के बाद उन्हें गुजरात राज्य की कमान सौंपी गयी। तब से लेकर अब तक वे तमाम आरोप-प्रत्यारोपों के बावजूद गुजरात प्रदेश के मुख्यमन्त्री बने हुए हैं।







Narendra Damodardas Modi (born 17 September 1950) is the 14th and current Chief Minister of Gujarat, a state in western India.


He has been a member of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) since childhood, having an interest in politics since adolescence. He holds a master's degree in political science. In 1998, he was chosen by L. K. Advani, the leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), to direct the election campaign in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh.


He became the chief minister of Gujarat for the first time in October 2001, promoted to the office at a time when his predecessor Keshubhai Patel had resigned, following the defeat of BJP in the by-elections. His tenure as chief minister began on 7 October 2001. On 18 September 2012, he became the longest serving Chief Minister in Gujarat's history when he had been in power for 4000 days continuously. Under his leadership Bhartiya Janata Party won 2012 State Assembly Elections and he was chosen to serve for this fourth term as Chief Minister of Gujarat.


Modi's administration received heated criticism surrounding the 2002 Gujarat violence, for which he is a controversial figure both within India and internationally. Modi enjoys considerable support amongst the Indian middle class and Indian and international entrepreneurs. He is credited with the high economic growth in Gujarat under his government. Modi is one of the few Indian politicians who have never faced allegations of corruption.


Prime Ministerial candidate

The BJP secured a majority in 2012 elections. Narendra Modi won in his constituency Maninagar by a margin of 86,373 votes against Shweta Bhatt (wife of Sanjiv Bhatt) of the Indian National Congress. The BJP has been the ruling party in Gujarat since 1995.


International diplomacy

As the Chief Minister of the Gujarat State, to attract foreign investment in the state, Narendra Modi has made visits to foreign countries, including China, Singapore and Japan.


Narendra Modi made his first China visit in 2007 to invite investors Vibrant Gujarat Global Investor Summit, and second visit in November 2011. One month after the second visit to China, the Chinese Government released 13 diamond traders from India jailed by the Shenzhen Customs, which the Chief Minister described as the consequence of his diplomatic efforts and statesmanship.


In 2005 Narendra Modi was denied diplomatic visa to the United States, in addition to this visa denial, his already granted B-1/B-2 visa was also revoked, under a section of the Immigration and Nationality Act which makes any foreign government official who was responsible or "directly carried out, at any time, particularly severe violations of religious freedom" ineligible for the visa.


For ten years after the 2002 violence, the United Kingdom refused to deal with Narendra Modi, but the UK changed this policy in October 2012. Similarly, the European Union ended over a decade-old boycott of Modi in 2012, delinking his image from any human rights issues.
