Mr. Narendra Damodardas Modi or just Narendra Modi has come into the national politics as a breath of fresh air. He has a past, in present he is all over and surely he will continue to occupy the public space into the foreseeable future. As media member, we have no right to pass value judgment or being judgmental. We have covered Mr. Modi in our pages since 2012. We have tried to be balanced in handling issues involved, beginning with an iconic Gujarat Chief Minister and his journey up to the corridors of power in New Delhi and his stint as the Prime Minister.
