Mr. Narendra Modi can be called the most modern Prime Minister of INDIA, using latest mass communication techniques like social media to his advantage, he completely altered the way an election can be fought and won. As is said ‘the Modi Politics’, he continues to bring about newer changes in the functioning fashion of the government bodies, putting technology to work wherever viable. Today, as the Delhi polls choose AAP over BJP, the discussions are rave about Modi wave losing its sheen.
Last summer, as Mr. Modi took over the country’s flailing political scenario to be sworn in as the 15th Prime minister, lot has been said and written about the transformations in policies, strategies and implementations that can be brought about, after the long awaited turnover.
Entering politics at a very young age, our current prime minister finds his roots with the groups ABVP, RSS and the likes. Known for fearless execution and extraordinary oratory skills, our Prime minister brings in a new energy in the field of politics. Effectually chairing the Gujarat Chief Ministerial office and holding it for a record period, the dynamics speak it all, the story of a mere tea vendor to an eminent bureaucrat.
The Gujarat riots, following the Godhra incident, in 2002, have been one of the major challenges that Mr. Modi faced as a politician. Despite, the criticism for delayed, inadequate and fallacious action leading to deterioration of the situation, Mr. Modi continued to garner party support and held his own in Gujarat. In his long political career, he has taken strong stands against terrorism demanding support from the central government whenever necessary and, at the same time innovatively addressing long neglected issues to a most unexpected turnaround to the advantage of the state and its people. He has shown resolute confidence in staying firm on decisions leading to progress of the infrastructure and economy of state and people which would have meant going against the tide. He has also been called a catalyst in bringing about progress in the state of Gujarat resulting in ‘Vibrant Gujarat’. He has been credited for speeding up the major milestones in agricultural and technological development in Gujarat including the Jyotigram Yojana and finance Techcity Project.
It is most apt to say that Mr. Modi can be called a true trend setter, since the situation defining Indian politics was strictly pointing largely towards localized politics rather than a strong central power. He has also been lauded by masters in the field for exploring new avenues to betterment of economy and using it, as a paradigm in progress. Before and during the election days, he has effectively explored communication channels like facebook, Twitter, and google. This played a major role in connecting and sharing his thoughts with youths and the more elite crowd of India. Handling challenges on different fronts, first in the list, infrastructure gains importance, as improvement in public services and connectivity by road, rail, and air remains in the forefront amongst others like health and literacy percentages. Though, India is known as the I.T hub of the world, the Modi government has been elected expecting elevated rankings, providing a stimulus towards an improved infrastructure. Another challenge for the government is building sound network of roads which can work towards better distribution of goods and curb price rise. Corruption poses another difficult challenge and would need ruthlessness and self resilience on the part of the leader to combat it in the near future. Justification of his decisions towards long term goals, which may be harsh on the government and people alike, would be another challenge for which Mr Modi would have to be ready.
Waking up to the realities like stalled Infrastructure, deep rooted corruption and awry business policies, amongst others like illiteracy, poverty and communalism to mention the most apparent ones in the never ending list, the Modi government has taken seemingly small, but firm steps. Sitting at the top of the administrative hierarchy, Mr. Modi uses his rich political experience to set the battle of adversities in top gear and traverses the unknown path towards ‘Swach, Sundar and Advanced Bharat’.
Mine will be a government that gives equal respect to all religions” – Mr. Narendra Modi
