Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s birthday is being celebrated across the country. He was born on 17 September 1950 in Vadnagar. PM Modi’s childhood was spent in poverty. He used to sell tea in childhood. Later he joined RSS and after that he continued to make his way and establish new positions in national and international scenario. Today, Modi is the most loved leader in the world. People praise him wherever he goes. When the war with Pakistan happened, Narendra Modi was a teenager. Narendra Modi started serving tea to the soldiers who were going to and returning from the war at the local railway station. Narendra Modi reportedly wanted to join the Sainik school in Jamnagar, but the financial condition of his family was such that it could not afford the fee. Modi joined  National Cadet Corps (NCC).

Narendra Modi joined Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) in 1972. During his period there, he led the Navnirman anti-corruption agitation in 1974. He was also appointed as general secretary of an RSS committee- Gujarat Lok Sangharsh Samiti – coordinating opposition to the Emergency in Gujarat. Modi entered mainstream politics joining BJP in 1987, and was promoted as the General Secretary of the Gujarat unit within a year. He organised the Somnath to Ayodhya Rath Yatra of the then BJP chief L K Advani and the march from Kanyakumari to Kashmir, between 1988 and 1995. Same year Modi was appointed as the National Secretary of the party. He was elevated to the post of General Secretary in 1998, and held the position till 2001.

In 2001, veteran Congress leader Madhav Rao Scindia died in a plane crash. At that time Narendra Modi was living in Delhi. A journalist was also killed in the plane crash in which Congress leader Madhav Rao Scindia died. There was a crowd of people at the funeral of Madhav Rao Scindia. But very few people attended the funeral of that journalist. Modi then attended the journalist’s last visit instead of attending Scindia’s funeral. When Narendra Modi was present at the crematorium for the journalist’s funeral, he received a call from the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Vajpayee proposed Modi to be the CM of Gujarat. Which Modi accepted. Thus, after that one phone call, Narendra Modi became the CM of Gujarat in 2001 for the first time.


After that, Modi never looked back. He was the CM of Gujarat for three consecutive times. Then in 2014, Narendra Modi stepped into the Center politics and became the Prime Minister in the government of absolute majority.In his first term, he took many bold decisions in the interest of the country. Raised India’s value on the global stage.He made India an advanced nation.

Strengthened foreign policy. Set Indian culture on a global stage. Modi again became Prime Minister after completing a successful five-year term. This time the BJP became stronger than before. In his tenure so far, Modi took many bold decisions,i ncluding ending triple talaq, abolishing Article 370.
