Like the great Mahatma Gandhi, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi also comes from the state of Gujarat which is known for the entrepreneurial, hardworking, and peaceloving Gujaratis who can be found across the world. Modi too has been influenced by Gandhi who is one of the greatest leaders the world has ever produced, and it is perhaps this reason that Modi also wants to enters the annals of history as someone who is immortal. Inspired by Mahatma Gandhi, Modi has decided to launch the Swachh Bharat Mission on October 2 to mark the birth anniversary of the great Indian leader. The PM will also wield a broom today to mark this event which aims at cleaning the nation in the next five year by reaching out to all Indian to make cleanliness a movement of the people.
It was because of this reason that Panchayati raj institution was strengthened in the state of Gujarat, and it is most likely that the nation will witness more active empowerment of these institutions across the country under Modi rule. As a chief minister Modi also announced that an amount of Rs 1 lakh would be given to village leaders who are elected unanimously, and it led to 45 per cent of Gujarat villages electing chiefs unopposed. The Indian PM has also been inspired by the deep faith of Gandhi in Hinduism, and has no qualms in following his religious beliefs. During his US visit, Modi continued his fasting for the last several days, and survived on only warm water which showed how deep his faith in the religion is. He has also said that Hinduism is a universal meditation, and there was place for every religion in the country.
Modi has also written a number of books, and believes in establishing the ram rajya in the country which was also a dream of the great Mahatma. Gandhi believed that unless Ram Rajya comes to India there could be little development, and poverty would not end. The fulfillment of his dream might have been delayed but if there is anyone who can realize this goal it is PM Modi.
