Narendra Modi became Gujarat Chief Minister in 2001 but it seems like he's been around forever and nobody even comes close to the coverage he gets both in the mainstream media and social media.
The scrutiny on him only increased when he became Prime Minister in 2014.
A look at 25 of his controversies...
1. The Super Chief Minister: Early on when he managed Gujarat affairs, he was called a "Super CM" by his opponents. State BJP leaders complained that he usurped their powers in the name of "organization". However this eventually put him on the Gujarat CM's chair.
2. Support to Sukh Ram: Congress leader Sukh Ram became infamous in the 1990s when Rs 3.6 crore cash was found at his residence. As BJP General Secretary, Modi was in charge of Himachal Pradesh and he stitched a deal with Sukh Ram in a hung Assembly to seize power.
