Controversies of Narendra Modi

The biggest controversy in his career is the 2002 Gujarat Riots in which he has been criticized to mastermind it.   Teesta Setalvad held him responsible for the murder of her husband in the Gulbarg Society in 2002.   He was also held responsible for the fake encounter of Ishrat Jahan.   He has also been criticized regarding his marital status.   The United States denied visa for his role in the Gujarat Riots.   He was criticized for tapping the phone-calls of a girl (a student of architecture) in the Snoopgate scandal.   In 2015, he was criticized for wearing a suit worth ₹10 Lakh with a monogram of his name- Narendra Modi.   On 10 August 2018, the first time in the history of Indian Parliament, a portion of Prime Minister's comment was deleted from the records of the Rajya Sabha. After the election of Harivansh Narayan Singh as the Deputy Chairman of the Rajya Sabha, in his speech congratulating Harivansh, PM Modi said the election was between "two Haris." He went on to take a swipe at Mr. Hariprasad (opposition's candidate), playing with his initials.

He is also credited to bring Yoga to the international level by getting it recognized as International Yoga Day by the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in 2015. Since then, every year, 21 June is celebrated as International Yoga Day, worldwide.  He undertook a 3-month course in the United States on Image Management and Public Relations.  Does Narendra Modi Drink Alcohol?: No  On 8 November 2016, in the most surprising move in the administrative history of India, he announced to demonetize the Rs. 500 & 1000 currency notes (the two biggest currencies in India at that time).  On 23 May 2019, after the results of the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections, he became the only leader of BJP to lead the party register more than 300 seats in the history of Lok Sabha Elections.  Narendra Modi is considered as the most techno-savvy leader of India as he is very active on various social media platforms including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc.  He always puts his signature in Hindi, whether it is a casual occasion or an official document.  He doesn't share his official residence with any of his family members.  Young Narendra Modi often lent his hands to his father's tea-stall at the Vadnagar Railway Station.  When his father died of Bone Cancer in 1989, Narendra Modi was on Kailash Manasarovar Yatra.  Narendra Modi was engaged to Jashodaben at a very young age.  In 2016, London's Madame Tussaud Wax Museum unveiled a wax statue of Modi.  Does Narendra Modi Smoke?: No  He is a great follower of Swami Vivekananda.  On 26 May 2014, he became the first ever Prime Minister of India to be born in independent India.  At the age of 17, he left his house and travelled to different parts of India.  After Barack Obama, Narendra Modi is the second most followed leader in the world on Twitter (more than 12 million followers).  During his tenure as the Chief Minister of Gujarat, it became the world's 2nd best State in 2010.  He was born into a family of an oil-pressing community, which is considered as the Other Backward Class (OBC) in India.  When he joined Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), he was assigned to mop the floor at the RSS Headquarter in Ahmedabad.  He is a pure vegetarian and prefers simple food in his meal.  He never took even a single day holiday during his 13-year tenure as the Chief Minister of Gujarat.  On 28 September 2014, he received a full-house reception at the Madison Square Garden in New York.
