Narendra Damodardas Modi became India’s 14th Prime Minister in May 2014, as a through a landslide victory in a seismic national election. He attained an iconic status and the stature has only grown with time, in India and beyond.

Today, he dominates every discussion and debate on political as well as socio-economic concerns in India. This is not only because he is the head of the executive establishment, but purely due to his influence on the contemporary state of affairs.
With the dogmatic pursuit of the agenda of development, Narendra Modi returned to power in the State of Gujarat for an unprecedented fourth consecutive term as the Chief Minister.

Even Muslim leaders acknowledge that under Modi, Muslims in Gujarat were much safer than in any other part of India.

Hence, making a notable departure from the past, even his foreign policy focuses on business diplomacy, so as to make India the global hub for foreign investment.
