    Narendra Modi, who posted a resounding victory in the assembly elections, will be sworn in as Gujarat Chief Minister for the fourth time on December 26.
    Modi became Chief Minister for the first time on October 1, 2001 and subsequently in 2002 and 2007.
    Modi drove to Raj Bhavan in Gandhinagar this morning and submitted his resignation and that of his council of ministers to Governor Kamla Beniwal following constitution of the new House.
    "As per the constitutional obligation, after the announcement of the results of the state assembly elections the Council of Ministers and Chief Minister as its head have tendered their resignations to the state Governer," Gujarat BJP spokesman Vijay Rupani said.
    The out-going assembly was dissolved yesterday by the Governor after the results of new assembly were declared.
    BJP has won 115 seats in the 182-member House, 23 more than what is required for a simple majority.
    "On December 25 a meeting of the newly-elected MLAs will be held to formally elect Narendra Modi as the leader of BJP legislature party," said Rupani.
    Senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley is likely to present as an observer, he said, adding Modi would be administered the oath of office and secrecy on December 26.
    The swearing-in ceremony is likely to take place at Sardar Patel Stadium in Ahmedabad.

    Hes a typical Supreme Leader for life.

    Allegations of corruption, murder but still a larger than life image. He will never be out of power in his lifetime.

    Narendra Modi is on the cover of TIME this week in South Asia, available to subscribers here. Modi is the most polarizing politician in India, rarely gives interviews and is a possible future prime minister, but it bears repeating that putting Modi on the cover is not an endorsement. Researching and eventually interviewing Modi was, however, fascinating, and yielded several surprises.

    The road to his office in Gandhinagar, a smooth, featureless four-lane highway, held the first one: Modi ordered the demolition of about 120 small Hindu shrines to make room for it, despite vehement objections from his Hindu nationalist allies. Modi may be portrayed as an ideologue, but he is more complicated than that. “He’s the only leader in the country who would be able to destroy a temple and get away with it, and still be called acceptable in Hindu politics,” says Tridip Suhrud, a social scientist based in Ahmedabad.


    Modi’s reaction to my questions about his childhood was also surprising. He didn’t romanticize Vadnagar, the town where he grew up. He had little to say about his “very average family,” whose entire house, he says, could fit into the chief minister’s office. He left home at 17 to join the RSS, so he doesn’t have the polish of those politicians educated in elite institutions, but his English was nearly flawless, and he clearly believes in the power of the individual to educate, improve and reinvent himself. “I have never gone to college,” Modi says. “But books were my best friends.”

    Most of the story weighs the two sides of the central paradox of Modi’s rise: for some, he will always be the man who presided over the 2002 anti-Muslim violence, and there are millions who will never forgive him and hope that he will eventually face criminal charges. (Modi has always denied any wrongdoing, and said he did the best that he could to protect the people of his state.) For others, 2002 is a distant memory, and Modi is fully rehabilitated as a paragon of good governance and effective administration. Those may seem like two irreconcilable halves, but spend any time in Gujarat, and both are simultaneously visible.

    I first met Virendra Mhaiskar, CEO of the road building company IRB, for example, while researching a story on infrastructure in India. “Mr. Modi is looked upon with different lenses in different parts of the world,” Mhaiskar told me. He recalled submitting a $42 million bid to complete a section of Ahmedabad’s excellent bus rapid-transit system. The entire bidding process was done online — no cups of tea with mid-level bureaucrats, no photo-ops with local politicians. “Even today, I don’t know who the mayor is,” he says.

    It’s possible to find similar sentiments even among Muslims. “What happened in Gujarat 10 years back was the darkest phase in the history of Gujarat,” says Mohsin Sheikh, 56, an artist who lives in the Muslim enclave of Sarkhej in Ahmedabad. “I am hopeful that the victims will soon get justice. At the same time, I think that everyone should try to forget what happened a decade back and move on. Gujarat’s development is benefiting not just one community but all the people of Gujarat, irrespective of caste and religion.” That’s the argument that Modi will have to make if he ever wants to win national office: that economic development is more important than court verdicts or compensation, and that he can deliver growth and prosperity for everyone.

    With the Congress Party-led coalition facing wide criticism for corruption and ineffectiveness, Modi’s chances look good. But he will also have to overcome opposition within his own party. During a decade as chief minister, he has earned quite a few enemies. “He believes that if you really want to do certain things, you cannot waste time in discussions and compromising,” says Ghanshyam Shah, a political scientist in Ahmedabad. Those who challenged him, including ministers in his own cabinet, were shut out, and Modi refused to allow them to stand for election on BJP tickets. One faction split off into a new party; another group defected to the opposition. By the end of 2006, Modi had effectively replaced the entire political leadership of the state with those loyal to him. “In Gujarat, the BJP became Modi – one voice,” says Shah. “Anyone who had a different voice had no place within the party.” That approach has left Modi alienated within his own party, but he’ll need the BJP machinery to actually run a national campaign. Even if he doesn’t become prime minister, Modi offers a glimpse of what India might be like if it became, as some of its critics wish, a little more like China. He represents a new kind of Indian politician — democratically elected but authoritarian in style and spirit. “The future belongs to him,” says Suhrud. “The future belongs to that kind of politics.”

    You are painting a wrong picture of him @Asim Aquil
    Allegations of corruption are on almost every political leader in India. Murder charges are limited to the riots.

    Even Shiela Dikshit is in her 3rd consecutive term as CM of Delhi. It is likely that she will win her 4th term as CM despite allegations of corruption! Narendra Modi has only just won his 3rd term in office.

    By and large you will see across India a clear trend is emerging - people are willing to overlook corruption allegations if those political leaders deliver clear, tangible development of their state.. are getting reelected again and again be they Congress or BJP

    There was no need to contest election...we all knew modi will win..now it's offically declared ....
    once again a clear slap on face of sickularist kongress who thought they would win in gujrat...
    our FM minister even gave retard statement that congress has won in gujrat by comparing the previous election figures....
    modi is still favourite among gujratis and muslim..12 seats have been won by BJP from 19 muslim dominated areas this shows that muslim prefer modi unlike what pakistani member in PDF thinks!!!!!

    That's what I meant by Supreme Leader - He is the Sultan of Gujarat.

    If you don't like to discuss things with Pakistanis then leave - there's the door!

    dint expect from Admin,You seem to be completely biased and i know the factor too.
    He is not sultan and whom statement you are pointing? ahmed patel? he has been elected by people due to good governance he provided.So he has been made sultan by people so go n protest against local people.

    Its not like rahul gandhi who have been declared sultan just coz of name gandhi attached behind him.Just look at the amethi from where he has been elected,even girls college there dont have roof there.This is called as sultan...

    Post you quoted is half truth.You have been posting without having iota of knowledge about modi and then you say there is door :lol:

    And Who claimed this ?? Mr Patel, political secretary to Sonia Gandhi . Hope you know about the sonia mam..

    btw thanks for thing funny link. Where this idiot ahmed patel said " He (Mr Modi) is saying that there is no corruption in Gujarat government. But it has been proved that he is the most corrupt person in Gujarat... If dogs from across the world are released, they would find Chief Minister's bungalow in Gandhinagar, a hub of corruption. "

    This is the quality of such idiot ahmed patel and sonia gandhi. You can see such type of statements from all congress politicians.

    But i love the way Modi answered " He (Mr Patel) called Modi a sultan!...but it is dynasty that produces sultans and you spent your life in the service of these sultans in New Delhi, hence you cannot think of any other word."

    But this is sad that you have posted 20K post till now and you are posting such stupid people " ahmed patel " news here to justify your thoughts.

    Gujarat given great leaders like MK Gandhiji , Sardar Vallabhai patel , NAMO to India , royal salute to Gujarat. BJP not having strong hold in UP otherwise NAMO is unbeatable , India fate lies in the hands of UP people. I hope they will vote for him.

    Sir, check again, he has been elected by 6 crore people of Gujarat DEMOCRATICALLY with 2/3rd majority not once, not twice but THRICE.

    Not just Gujarat, but the recent INDIA TODAY magazine survey showed that he is the most preferred choice for the post of PM with as much as 24% people of India liking him for the TOP JOB, with Rahul Gandhi being a distinct second with 12% only.

    If he would have really committed the crimes which he is OFTEN accused of, than there is no way he could have been in the corridors of power for so long with 2/3rd mandate of the people.
