There are serious questions over the authenticity of PM Modi’s BA degree from the University of Delhi and MA degree from the Gujarat University. Though both the universities have released statements to support Modi’s claim in the past, they continue to refuse to share the information needed to allay growing suspicion over various anomalies present in the available documents - his name, date of birth and even his specialization on a subject called “Entire Political Science”.
2002 Gujarat riots: This is the biggest controversy of his career. First he was accused of masterminding it. Then he was accused of asking police to look the other way. His whole career seemed to be redefined based on it after that. In the report of SIT modi got clean cheat in this riots.
Most talked Moment/ Activity:
Jashodaben Chimanlal Modi and Narendra Modi's marriage was arranged by the latter's parents, in keeping with the traditions of the Ghanchi caste. While the two were engaged when Modi was 13 years of age, they got married in 1968, when Modi was 18 years of age. The marriage took place in Modi's native village, Vadnagar, in Mehsana district. The couple lived together for 3 months, after which Modi left home to travel across India, journeying as a 'sanyasi', as he described it to his family. After a period of three years, Modi stopped visiting his wife and family, as he got involved in his work as an RSS pracharak. Media reports state that the marriage was never consummated.
During the late 1960s, when Modi joined RSS, his job was to sweep the floor and after few months, was “promoted” as tea maker in the office. Later, he was “promoted” to become the office cook and after realizing his potential, he was “promoted” to be the mailboy who would reply to emails delivered to the office.
When JP movement was at its peak in the mid-1970s with a strong anti-Indira wave, Modi was a caterer and office boy who would adjust microphones for LK Advani, clean stages during rallies and carry water bottles for Vajpayee. By mid-1980s, he was an event organizer.
In the early 1990s, he was promoted to become the strategist who organized Rath Yatra for LK Advani & Ekta Yatra for Murli Manohar Joshi. Even till the late 1990s, Modi was perceived as a “glorified” office-boy & event organizer by the BJP stalwarts. LK Advani’s attitude towards Modi was like that towards a servant and the following anecdote illustrates it pretty well: One fine afternoon in 1995, Keshubhai & Advani, sitting in the backseat were being chauffeured in a car with Modi sitting in the front seat (adjacent to the driver). When they spotted Govindacharya (another BJP member) on the road, the driver stopped the car to pick up Govindacharya and in turn asked Modi to get down to make space. With surprise, Modi looked at Advani expecting him to intervene (or atleast try to adjust in the backseat by allowing Modi to sit with him), but Advani turned his face away and gazed at the window, pretending to be unaware of the situation. Feeling humiliated, Modi got down from the car and walked all the way to the office. The above anecdote is just one of the several instances of the attitude of senior BJP leaders towards their younger colleagues. Inspite of such attitude from Advani, Modi had always respected him for his age & experience and always sought his blessings. Whenever someone from BJP praised Modi & proposed his name for national level, Advani would laugh and brush it aside saying Modi is still young & there are many other senior leaders who can be considered for such top posts. This seems to be the beginning of the end of the political careers of long serving leaders LK Advani and Murli Manohar of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as they have reportedly not been given any cabinet portfolio. While several other top BJP leaders have found a place in Modi's new government there is no mention of the old timers having key roles in the new government.
