Go-getter Narendra Modi is an indefatigable campaigner
BJP's prime ministerial candidate is a go-getter, for he gets what he wants.

His campaign for Lok Sabha throughout the country is marked by the determination with which he fights opponents and other parties.

He does not bother about his words hurting other political leaders, for his aim is bring the NDA led by him to power by a huge margin.


Narendra Damodardas Modi , born 17 September 1950), is an Indian politician and is the incumbent and 14th Chief Minister of the state of Gujarat.

He is a member of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and is the prime ministerial candidate of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance in the 2014 Indian general elections.

Modi was a key strategist for the BJP in the successful 1995 and 1998 Gujarat state election campaigns, and was a major campaign figure in the 2009 general elections, eventually won by the Indian National Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA).

He first became chief minister of Gujarat in October 2001 after the resignation of his predecessor, Keshubhai Patel, and following the defeat of BJP in the by-elections.

In July 2007, he became the longest-serving Chief Minister in Gujarat's history, at which point he had been in power for 2,063 days continuously. He is currently serving his fourth consecutive term as Chief Minister.

Modi is a member of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and is described as a Hindu nationalist by media, scholars and himself.

He is a controversial figure both within India and internationally as his administration has been criticised for the incidents surrounding the 2002 Gujarat violence.

He has been praised for his economic policies, which are credited with creating an environment for a high rate of economic growth in Gujarat.

However, his administration has also been criticised for failing to make a significant positive impact upon the human development of the state/
