This information is very important for the students those who are study in the different stream. i like to share the things about our Narendrabhai Modi who is the present chief minister of Gujarat I am sure he will be the next prime minister of india. He did work as a humanity person for the Gujarat so he should be the chief minister and If the government will give him chance to be a prime minister so he would accept the chance to serve our country.
