It was his commitment which enabled him to complete his post graduation in political science.

He began with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), a socio-cultural organization with a focus on social and cultural development of India.

He entered mainstream of politics in 1987 by joining the BJP(Bhartiya Janta Party). Just within a year, he was steped one by one up to the level of General Secretary of the Gujarat unit.

By that time he had already acquired a reputation for being a highly efficient organizer. He took up the challenging task of energizing the party cadres. The party started gaining political mileage and formed a government at the centre in April 1990. This partnership fell apart within a few months, but the BJP came to power with a two-thirds majority on its own in Gujarat in 1995. Since then, the BJP has been governing Gujarat.

Between 1988 and 1995, He was recognized as a master strategist who had successfully gained the necessary groundwork for making the Gujarat BJP the ruling party of the state.

He was entrusted with the responsibility of organizing two national events, the Somnath to Ayodhya Rath Yatra (a very long march) of Shri L.K. Advani and a march from Kanyakumari (the southernmost part of India) towards Kashmir in the North.

In 1995, he was appointed the National Secretary of the BJP and given the charge of five major states in India. In 1998, he was promoted as the General Secretary (Organization), a post he held until October 2001, when he was chosen to be the Chief Minister of Gujarat.

In October 2001, he was called by the party to lead the Government in Gujarat. When Shri Modi 's government was sworn in on October 7, 2001, the economy of Gujarat was under the adverse effects of several natural calamities, including a massive earthquake in January 2001.

He conceived the Panchamrit Yojana – a five-pronged strategy for an integrated development of the state.

Under his leadership, the state is witnessing massive transformation in most of sectors including education, agriculture, healthcare and several others. He developed a clear vision of his own for the future of the state, launched policy- reform programmes, reoriented government's administrative structure and successfully put Gujarat on the road to prosperity.

In the December 2002 general elections the Modi government was voted back to power with a massive majority of 128 seats in a house of 182.On December 22, 2002, when he was sworn-in as the chief minister of Gujarat for the second time, the ceremony had to be held in an open-air stadium because of the sheer number of people who wanted to watch and hear the leader they had so overwhelmingly elected.

Fighting against all odds, he ensured that the Narmada dam reached 121.9m. Height – He even observed a fast to counteract those obstructing the construction.

"Sujalam Sufalam" – a scheme to create a grid of water resources in Gujarat is yet another innovative step towards water conservation and its appropriate utilization.

His initiatives such as Krishi Mahotsav, Chiranjeevi Yojana, Matru Vandana, Beti Bachao campaign (save the girl child), Jyotigram Yojana, and Karmayogi Abhiyan etc. aim at multi-dimensional development of Gujarat.

Under his able leadership, Gujarat has bagged several awards and accolades from all over the world – including UN Sasakawa Award for disaster reduction, Commonwealth Association for Public Administration and Management (CAPAM) award for innovations in governance, UNESCO award, CSI award for e-Governance etc.

The big fact that Shri Narendra Modi has been ranked as the number one Chief Minister by the public for three consecutive years speaks volumes for his achievements.
