He visited the Ramkrishna Missin in Rajkot and then the Belur math in Kolkata. He also joined Swami Vivekananda ashram in Guwahati. Modi also want to join Indian Army but his family didn’t give permission for this. During the 1975-77 political crisis, Prime Minister Indira Gandhi declared a state of emergency, banning political organizations such as the RSS.

Modi became the Chief Minister of Gujarat in 2001. Modi always talked about Growth and development. In fact, Gujarat has shown an overall growth encompassing agriculture, manufacture and services under this man of development. He successfully completed his aim of giving electricity in each and every home by setting up Asia’s largest solar field. His dream project consists of solar power plants at Asia’s largest solar park at Charnka village, as well as solar units at 10 other places in Gujarat. In February 2002, while Modi served as chief minister of Gujarat, a commuter train was attacked, allegedly by Muslims. In retaliation, an attack was carried out on the Muslim neighborhood of Gulbarg. Violence spread, and Modi imposed a curfew granting police shoot-to-kill orders. After peace was restored, Modi’s government was criticized and he was criticized of allowing the killings of more than 1,000 Muslims.
