Who is the current prime minister of India?

Narendra Modi, the Chief Minister of Gujarat, was elected Prime Minister of India in 2014, becoming the country's first prime minister born in an independent India. In 2019, Narendra Modi was re-elected Prime Minister with a larger mandate than in 2014. The BJP-led NDA won 354 seats, with the BJP securing 303 of them. This is its best performance ever after two consecutive losses in 2009 and 2014.

Modi took office at the age of 49, making him the youngest person to become India's prime minister. He has also been accused by civil rights groups of human rights violations during his time as chief minister of Gujarat.

He became known outside Gujarat for his aggressive brand of politics, which included regular street rallies where he would make inflammatory speeches against Muslims before large crowds. The election campaign of 2014 was particularly divisive with attacks on Muslims taking place all over India. At least 2200 people were killed in violence related to the elections.

After winning the elections, Modi moved back to his home state of Gujarat where he was sworn in as prime minister on 26 May 2014. His cabinet was also sworn in later that day.

Modi has said that his priority as prime minister is to build a more developed India that can compete with the world's most advanced economies. However, he has been criticized for moving too slowly to address unemployment, poverty, and malnutrition across the country.

Modi has also been elected president of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), following his resignation as its leader. He became the first person to have led both the organisation and the government at the state level.

Modi won the 2009 election by a landslide victory with 282 out of 543 seats in the Lok Sabha (lower house of the Indian Parliament) reserved for candidates from single-seat constituencies. The BJP had never won more than two seats in any previous election until then; it was only in 1999 that it broke through the two-seat barrier. However, even after winning nearly 300 seats in 2009, the party was not able to form a government because it did not have enough votes to command support from other parties. Finally, it formed a coalition government with the help of smaller regional parties.

Modi's election campaign focused on economic development and security through independence for Kashmir.
