His charismatic appeal and long-standing profound work as a Chief Minister in Gujarat has won millions of hearts to discard the disenchanting 10-year rule of Congress-led UPA government. The echo of similar sentiments ‘Ab ki baar Modi sarkaar’ is resounding from different sections of society.

The projection of Modi as a prime ministerial candidate of BJP has proved very effective and magnificent as he came down heavily on the Gandhi family and Congress-led UPA government during the entire election campaign.

Having said all this, it will be quite challenging to see Modi’s equation with the senior leaders of his party after the general elections.

The 62-year-old Gujarat strongman, who enjoys the support of RSS, will definitely ensure that his Cabinet colleagues at the Centre should have firm vision and conviction to lead the nation and make the BJP party to achieve pinnacle of success.

Modi has also added to the woes of other major political parties like Samajwadi Party, BSP, TMC, Left and Trinamool Congress for their performance in the Parliament this time.

On contrary, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has so far rubbished the fact that there is a Modi wave in the country. He has repeatedly said the next government at the Centre would be formed by 'Third Front' and the Samajwadi Party would play a key role.

In addition to it, West Bengal Chief Minister and TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee has also been vociferous by using ‘choicest adjectives’ against Modi.

However, the election result on May 16, 2014 will give a clear picture of Modi’s fate which even India’s neighbouring countries and the World are eagerly waiting for.

The BJP strongman has made his view on relation with neighbouring nation Pakistan stating categorically in a recent interview with a leading English news channel that the discussions with Islamabad cannot take place amid bomb blasts and gunshots.

Moreover, United States has also indirectly reached out to Modi and expressed its desire to work closely with ‘whoever is the next Prime Minister of India’.

“We look forward to continuing to work with India on a whole range of issues with whoever is in the next Indian government, whoever is a part of that government," Department of State's Deputy Spokesperson Marie Harf said last week in response to a question on how US hopes to engage with India if the new Indian government is formed by the BJP with Narendra Modi as Prime Minister.

The remarks contain a great deal of significance as US had denied Modi a visa in 2005 on the ground of alleged human rights violations after the 2002 Gujarat riots.
