today I am going to tell about Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Narendra Modi is the fourteenth Prime Minister of India, who took office on May 26, 2014. Before taking over as the PM, Modi was the Chief Minister of the Indian state of Gujarat for three consecutive terms (2001 to 2014). As the CM, he is credited with boosting Gujarat’s economy and making it a lucrative investment destination for industrialists. Lets know more.
Narendra Damodardas Modi was born to a family of grocers in a town called Vadnagar in Mehsana district of Gujarat. He was born on 17 September, 1950 to Damodardas Mulchand Modi and Heeraben Modi. The couple had six children among which Narendra Modi was the third eldest.
Modi completed his studies against all odds. His saga of struggle began when as a teenager, he, along with his brother, used to run a tea stall near a railway station in Ahmedabad. He did his schooling from Vadnagar and obtained a master’s degree in Political Science from Gujarat University.
Schemes Launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi are Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana (for financial inclusion), Swachch Bharat Mission (for clean public places and better sanitation facilities), Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (provision of LPG to families living BPL) and Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai Yojana (efficiency in irrigation).
