17 Facts About Narendra Modi you might not know


Narendra-Modi-PM-candidate-of-IndiaLove him or hate him, you cannot ignore the triple winner Gujarat Chief Minister. His way of talking and branding has been much talked about and although he do not speak that much, he make people speak about him. And whatever he says becomes NaMo mantra.

He is news by himself and every statement he gives starts discussions across the country. His opponents seem to be scared to talk much of him and those who have dared to fight him seem to have lost the battle without he being starting the fight(or atleast not visible)!!

Narendra Modi is a pure vegetarian. He is strict of his food and diet.



Namo was born in a family of grocers on 17 sept 1950(3rd of 6 siblings).



In 1965, there was a war between India and Pakistan. Modi had volunteered to serve the soldiers in transit at a railway station.


Modi used to run a tea stall with his brother as a teenager!!


Modi was spiritually inclined and he was not interested in society and its rules. At the age of 18, he left his home to become a sanyasi at Himalayas, the saintly person in Hindu who leaves the worldly affairs and devotes his life for spirituality. But he was not getting peace of mind there and hence he returned back.



RSS deputed him to BJP in 1987.



Modi’s name came into picture of being the CM candidate after lot of complaints from the earlier candidate Keshubhai Patel. L K Advani was worried to give a rather newbie with such a responsibility but he told L K Advani and Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee that he should be given either full or no responsibility of Gujarat.



The rift between Modi and RSS started when he became chief minister and was implementing corporate governance which was against RSS idealogy.



2002 Gujarat riots claimed 790 Muslims and 254 Hindus. Modi’s Government and he himself was held responsible for not acting on time and even helping the Hindus in this. Although none of the charges against him has been proved till date even though the rival congress was ruling the center for most of the time after riots.


Zakia Jafri claimed that when riots began in the area where she lived, her husband made a couple of calls to many politicians but SIT could not verify that. Even the calls were deemed unsubstantiated as many of the officers she referred to were not on the city that day. Many such allegations on NaMo have been proved wrong in the past.



He responded to an  urdu weekly on asking for apology as follows:

There is no question of apologising because if I have committed this crime, then I should not be forgiven, I should be hanged. And I should be hanged in such a way that people should learn a lesson for 100 years that nothing like this should happen.

If I have not committed the crime, then the nation and the media especially should seek my forgiveness.
