India's president appointed Narendra Modi as the new prime minister of the world's largest democracy Tuesday, the presidential palace said in a
statement.Modi succeeds Manmohan Singh, whose Congress party suffered its worst-ever defeat in the recent general elections.
President Pranab Mukherjee will administer the oath of office and secrecy to Modi on May 26, the statement said.
As a child and as a teenager, he ran a tea stall with his brother near a bus terminus. In 1967, he completed his schooling in Vadnagar, where a
teacher described him as being an average student, but a keen debater who had an interest in theatre. That interest has influenced how he now projects
himself in politics.
He was appointed as the Gujarat Chief Minister in 2002 and has been reelected 4 times consecutively in state elections ..
Gujarat alone has been growing faster than China while rest of the country has been growing at around 5-4%
Previous Govt. of the congress party which is actually led by Gandhi(not Mahamtma Gandhi) Dynasty . They alone have around 4 Prime ministers and
follow a socialistic Divide and rule policy . They have ruled the country for 55 out of 67 years and the socialistic policies have always failed to
help grow . The recent 9% growth you saw for a few years was only because of the reforms done by the non congress govt. back in 2003 . Unfortunately
they lost the 2004 elections and congress have been in power for last 10 years ..
The last 3-4 years was especially exposed the scams and corruption of the govt. and the institutionalized Caste system(its not what you think) has
also made a lot of people angry .In 2013 Narandra Modi was announced as the PM Nominee of the opposition party . Considering the massive growth and
Employment he has managed to achieve in Gujarat soon people did start supporting him .
Result was the Congress party led NDA political alliance(ruling govt.) which had more than 272 seats in the parliament ended up with just 60 , While
NDA led by the BJP(main opposition party) ended up with 339 seats . While BJP alone has 282 while 272 is the required umber of seats to form a govt.
Main reason behind the support also was that he was a dirt poor boy selling tea in the railway station from the lowest caste, and is the person who
has gone up the ladder . While the Congress PM candidate Rahul Gandhi lived a golden life and yet he is stupider than a 5th Grader
Point is he now has lots of power and should be able to pass bills without much opposition and this is the most powerful govt. India has in 30 years
Next 5 years will be interesting . he is already deciding to make huge reforms withing the govt. itself . He is an ardent believer of having a smaller
govt. with Maximum governance ..
I know i sound Biased, because i voted for him
