Born on September 17, 1950, Modi grew up in Vadnagar in Gujarat's Mehsana district. After working with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), he joined the BJP in 1985 and served in various positions before becoming its general secretary in 2001.

In the same year, Modi was chosen as the chief minister of Gujarat by the party. In 2013, he was appointed as the BJP's campaign committee chief and later the prime ministerial candidate.

In the 2014, Modi led BJP to its best performance at that time in the Lok Sabha elections, winning 282 seats. It was for the first time since 1984 that a party had crossed the majority mark on its own. Five years later, the BJP won 303 seats in the Lok Sabha elections.
