Narendra Modi

The 16th Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to a historic win in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. A Chief Minister for 12 years, Modi got his first exposure to politics when he became a member of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), and then moved onto becoming the protege of LK Advani. He is a Hindu Nationalist and has been credited with the economic growth of Gujarat, though the stain of the 2002 Gujarat riots continues to remain a sticky issue for him.
