Amit Shah releases book on Modi’s life, says he is epitome of selfless service


NEW DELHI: Indian Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday released a book ‘Karmayoddha Granth’ on the life of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said he personifies qualities of a statesman, is a hard taskmaster and an ideal leader who leads by example.   

Shah talked about the three parts of Prime Minister’s life starting from the phase of dedicating his life to an ideology followed by entry into politics on the ideals of the “sangathan”, and finally upholding the tenets of parliamentary democracy and the Constitution to construct an ideal state.

“Today PM has transformed into a global leader without accreting anything for himself. Narendra Modi is the epitome of selfless service to the nation,” he said.

Talking about the journey of Modi’s life, Shah said the Prime Minister saw a childhood that was devoid of luxury and he faced poverty. He said Modi transformed into a leader who dedicated his life to the welfare of the people, without keeping any ill-feeling for anyone in the society.

Shah said that Modi resurrected the Gujarat BJP organization from scratch and transformed it into a living organism. The Home Minister narrated the challenges faced by Narendra Modi from natural calamities to social upheavals while he was chief minister of Gujarat and how he surmounted each one of them to transform the state by creating the ‘Gujarat model’.

“Modi laid the foundation of the New India based on ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’, from Gujarat. He brought the concept of ‘Jan Samvad’ in good governance, which was above partisan politics. The people of India recognised the Gujarat model of development and chose Modiji as the fit candidate to lead the Nation,” he said. 

The minister said India has emerged as a global power by taking bold decisions, including removal of Article 370, 35A in Jammu and Kashmir, bringing Citizenship Amendment Act, criminalising triple talaq,  conducting surgical strikes and Balakot airstrikes which nobody dared in last 70 years. He said Ram Mandir issue was also resolved. (ANI)
