Two days ago, the twitter hashtag #IsiliyeModi saw overwhelming response from people who came out in support of BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi. His followers gave innumerous reasons as to why he should become the prime minister of the country.

Yet his opponents demand proof and make a mockery of the development work that has taken place in Gujarat under his government.

Taking the story forward, we present you here 14 reasons as to why Modi should be PM giving proof of his work. Maybe after reading this, they will seal their lips and silently wait for their fall.

The 14 reasons are as follows:

  1. Gujarat has been recording substantial growth under Modi government. The state recorded 15.33 per cent growth rate for a state GDP of Rs. 513,172.84 crore (2013-14).
  2. Under the Modi government, agriculture has done remarkably well in the state in last decade. Agriculture production, which was at Rs 9,000 crore in year 2001-02, has been gone up to Rs 1,12,000 crore in the last fiscal. Total production of milk in year 2001-02 from 58.76 lakh metric tonne has risen to 103.15 lakh tonne now.
  3. The number of universities has increased from 15 in year 2000 to 52 now, while government colleges have jumped from 20 to 71 now. Gujarat is probably the only state in India which has built specialized universities catering to interests of students who wants to pursue their career beyond the usual streams of Commerce, Science and Arts. Rajsha Shakti University, Forensic Science University, Children’s university are to name some. He recently inaugurated Yoga University in the state.
  4. The infant mortality rate in Gujarat has come down to 38 in 2011 from 60 in 2001.
  5. School dropout rate for students in I to V was 20.50 per cent in year 2001-02, which has fallen to 2.07 per cent in 2011. Anticipating the damage that the huge emphasis on input norms in the Right to Education (RTE) Act could do to elementary education, Gujarat has adopted the most innovative implementation rules. These rules limit the requirements for the recognition of as yet unrecognised schools to eight square feet of area per student plus 60 square feet for the teacher in each classroom.
  6. For Gujarat the non-disadvantaged have a poverty decline of 15 percentage points between 1999/00 and 2011/12. For SC-STs, the poverty decline is 28 percentage points (ppt) for the same period. So, the excess poverty decline for SC-ST is 13 ppt, and this is the third-largest excess decline in the country for SC-STs. In the case of Muslims, Gujarat was the second-best performing state where they had the largest relative decline in poverty.
  7. Gujarat, as per the survey reports of Labor Bureau of India, 2012, happens to record the lowest unemployment rate of only 1% as compared to all the other states of the nation, where the national unemployment rate is estimated at 3.8% by the same report.
  8. Gujarat has become a major tourism hub, thanks to Modi’s ‘Vibrant Gujarat’ and ‘Khushboo Gujarat Ki’ campaign. Tourist arrival has risen to almost 30 percent in the last 2 years in the state.
  9. Providing internship opportunities with the government, rolling out schemes to improve both technical & soft skills of youth to make them employable, providing job opportunities to youth and with programs such as CM Fellowship Programme, Modi Government has ensured that the youth of the state become active partners in governance.
  10. Over the last decade, the Gujarat Government has taken several determined efforts to create opportunities for women to make them financially independent which make them more confident. Mission Mangalam is one such initiative which has empowered thousands of women in Gujarat. Gujarat is also known to be the safest when it comes to women safety.
  11. Gujarat government initiated several promising projects under Modi – from infrastructure to financial services sector. GIFT City, DMIC and Dholera SIR are to name some. Every city has world class bus depot. Gujarat state highways connect each and every city-town-village providing hassle free movement. The water supply grid in the state has made Gujarat water surplus state. Gujarat has the most friendly e-governance urban and rural centres. Major investors and industries prefer Gujarat than other states due to the infrastructure facilities and business-friendly environment there.
  12. He was given a clean chit by the SIT and Supreme Court in the 2002 riots case. His opponents choose to attack him over the issue again and again. But no one talks about the fact that there have been no riots in Gujarat after that while the country saw strings of riots in other parts of the country. People call him divisive and communal but overlook the fact that he did not think twice before breaking a temple for development work and convenience of people. He gave the slogan Pehle Shauchalaya, Phir Devalaya indicating that he was all for development and progress and that religion had nothing to do with it.
  13. Contrary to popular thought, Modi is a team player and not an authoritarian. He has a calm demeanor and a sense of right which was at display when his rally venue was marred y serial bomb blasts in Bihar. He doesn’t run away from responsibilities and his ministers gain from his vision.
  14. Last, but not the least, Modi is incorruptible. Level of corruption in Gujarat is lowest in the country. Modi has taken a resolve to bring back black money and root out corruption from the country.
