Slide3

EARLY LIFE AND EDUCATION

Narendra

Modi

was born on 17 September 1950 to a family of grocers in 

Vadnagar

, 

Mehsana

district, Bombay State (present-day Gujarat). He was the third of six children born to

Damodardas

Mulchand

Modi

(c.1915 - 1989) and

Hiraben

Modi

(born c.1920).

Modi's

family belonged to the 

Modh-Ghanchi-Teli

 (oil-presser)

community,which

is

categorised

as an Other Backward Class by the Indian government.

As a child,

Modi

helped his father sell tea at the

Vadnagar

railway station, and later ran a tea stall with his brother near a bus terminus. 

Modi

completed his higher secondary education in

Vadnagar

in 1967, where a teacher described him as an average student and a keen debater, with an interest in theatre. 

Modi

had an early gift for rhetoric in debates, and this was noted by his teachers and students. 

Modi

preferred playing larger-than-life characters in theatrical productions, which has influenced his political image.

Slide5

EARLY POLITICAL CAREER

In June 1975, Prime Minister 

Indira

Gandhi declared a state of emergency in India which lasted until 1977. During this period, known as "The Emergency", many of her political opponents were jailed and opposition groups were

banned.Modi

was appointed general secretary of the "Gujarat

Lok

Sangharsh

Samiti

", an RSS committee coordinating opposition to the Emergency in Gujarat. Shortly afterwards, the RSS was banned. 

Modi

was forced to go underground in Gujarat and frequently travelled in disguise to avoid arrest. He became involved in printing pamphlets opposing the government, sending them to Delhi and

organising

demonstrations.Modi

was also involved with creating a network of safe houses for individuals wanted by the government, and in raising funds for political refugees and activists. During this period,

Modi

wrote a book in Gujarati, 

Sangharsh

Ma Gujarat

 (

In The Struggles of Gujarat

), describing events during the Emergency. Among the people he met in this role was trade unionist and socialist activist George

Fernandes

, as well as several other national political

figures.In

his travels during the Emergency,

Modi

was often forced to move in disguise, once dressing as a monk, and once as a Sikh.

Slide6

CHIEF MINISTER OF GUJARAT

In 2001,

Keshubhai

Patel's health was failing and the BJP lost a few state assembly seats in by-elections. Allegations of abuse of power, corruption and poor administration were made, and Patel's standing had been damaged by his administration's handling of

theearthquake

in

Bhuj

in 2001. The BJP national leadership sought a new candidate for the chief

ministership

, and

Modi

, who had expressed misgivings about Patel's administration, was chosen as a replacement. Although BJP leader L. K.

Advani

did not want to

ostracise

Patel and was concerned about

Modi's

lack of experience in government,

Modi

declined an offer to be Patel's deputy chief minister, telling

Advani

and 

Atal

Bihari

Vajpayee that he was "going to be fully responsible for Gujarat or not at all". On 3 October 2001 he replaced Patel as Chief Minister of Gujarat, with the responsibility of preparing the BJP for the December 2002 elections. On 7 October 2001,

Modi

was administered the oath of office. On 24 February 2002 he entered the Gujarat state legislature by winning a by-election to the Rajkot – II constituency, defeating

Ashwin

Mehta of the INC by 14,728 votes, which enabled him to take office.

Slide7

2002 GUJARAT RIOTS

On 27 February 2002, a train with several hundred passengers 

burned near

Godhra

, killing approximately 60 people. The train carried a large number of Hindu pilgrims returning from 

Ayodhya

after a religious ceremony at the site of the demolished 

Babri

Masjid

. In making a public statement after the incident,

Modi

said that the attack had been terror attack planned by local Muslims. The next day, the 

Vishwa

Hindu

Parishad

 called for a 

bandh

 across the state. Riots began during the 

bandh

, and 

anti-Muslim violence

 spread through Gujarat. The government's decision to move the bodies of the train victims from

Godhra

to

Ahmedabad

further inflamed the violence. The state government stated later that 790 Muslims and 254 Hindus were killed.

Independent sources put the death toll at over 2000. Approximately 150,000 people were driven to refugee

camps.Numerous

women and children were among the victims; the violence included mass rapes and mutilations of women.

 

 

Slide8

DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS

As

Chief Minister,

Modi

favoured

privatisation

and small government, which was at odds with the philosophy of the RSS, usually described as anti-

privatisation

and anti-

globalisation

. His policies during his second term have been credited with reducing corruption in the state. He established financial and technology parks in Gujarat and during the 2007 Vibrant Gujarat summit, real-estate investment deals worth₹6.6 trillion were signed.

Slide9

DEVELOPMENT DEBATE

There has been a contentious debate surrounding the development of the state of Gujarat during

Modi's

tenure as chief minister. The GDP growth rate of Gujarat averaged 10% during

Modi's

tenure, a value above that of the country as a whole, and similar to other highly

industrialised

states. Gujarat also had a high rate of economic growth in the 1990s, before

Modi

took office.

Some scholars have stated the rate of growth did not accelerate during

Modi's

tenure, although the state is considered to have maintained a high growth rate during

Modi's

Chief

Ministership

. Under

Modi

, Gujarat topped the 

World Bank

's "ease of doing business" rankings among Indian states for two consecutive years. In 2013, Gujarat was ranked first among Indian states for "economic freedom" by a report measuring governance, growth, citizens' rights and

labour

and business regulation among the country's 20 largest states. In the later years of

Modi's

government, Gujarat's economic growth was frequently used as an argument to counter allegations of communalism. Tax breaks for businesses were easier to obtain in Gujarat than in other states, as was land.

Modi's

policies to make Gujarat attractive for investment included the creation of 

Special Economic Zones

, where

labour

laws were greatly weakened.

Slide10

2014 INDIAN ELECTION

In September 2013

Modi

was named the BJP's candidate for prime minister in the 2014

Lok

Sabha

election. Several BJP leaders expressed opposition to

Modi's

candidature, including BJP founding member L. K.

Advani

, who cited concern with leaders who were "concerned with their personal agendas". 

Modi

played a dominant role in the BJP's election campaign. Several people who voted for the BJP stated that if

Modi

had not been the prime-ministerial candidate, they would have voted for another

party.The

focus on

Modi

as an individual was unusual for a BJP election campaign. The election was described as a referendum on

Narendra

Modi

.
