Narendra Modi - Front runner in Indian prime ministerial race

Uttar Pradesh/New Delhi/Assam/Gujarat, April 6 (ANI): BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, the hot favourite for the PM position, stands on the cusp of leading the world's most populous democracy, after an election that looks set to make his party the biggest in the country. BJP has benefited from a wave of public anger over corruption scandals and a slowing economy under the ruling Congress, which may be facing one of it's weakest-ever showings at the polls. Narendra Damodardas Modi, now 63, was born and brought up in Vadnagar, a town built on a hill in rural Gujarat. The third child in a family of eight that struggled to make ends meet, he ended his education after school and abruptly left home, only returning years later for his father's funeral. The tea stall his father ran with the help of his sons is just as it was then, on the platform of the ramshackle railway station nearby. But Modi has come a long way from that small dwelling near the station. The BJP under Modi's stewardship has promised to kick-start the economy, bring in factories, and educate the densely populated and still-poor heartland states of India. Apr 6, 2014
