Narendra Modi's term as Chief Minister of Gujarat
As the Chief Minister of Gujarat, Modi promoted the state as 'Vibrant Gujarat' and claimed that the state had made rapid progress in terms of infrastructure development and economic development. Be that as it may, a few pundits likewise call attention to neediness, unhealthiness, and absence of legitimate training in the state. According to the data, the state ranked 14th in terms of poverty in September 2013 and 18th in terms of literacy rate in 2014. On the other hand, state officials claim that the state has performed better than other states in terms of women's education. Also, school dropout rates and maternal mortality rates have declined. Gujarat is one of the states which is not suffering from the problem of land mafia.
Contrary to claims made by state officials, Christophe Jaffrelot, a political scientist, said that development in the state was limited to the urban middle class only. Rural people and people from lower castes were ignored by the government. According to Jaffrelot, the number of people living below the poverty line increased under Modi's rule and at the same time, tribal and Dalit communities were considered subordinate. Many other critics, including noted economist Amartya Sen, believe the same.

First-term (2001 to 2002)

On 7 October 2001, Narendra Modi was named as the Chief Minister of the province of Gujarat.
He was given the responsibility of preparing the party for the December 2002 elections.
As Chief Minister, Modi emphasized the privatization of small government institutions.
Gujarat violence: A major incident of communal violence was witnessed on 27 February, resulting in the killing of 58 people, when a train carrying hundreds of passengers, mostly pilgrims were Hindus, was set on fire near Godhra. The incident resulted in anti-Muslim violence, which took almost all of Gujarat under control within a short time. It is estimated that the death toll ranged between 900 and 2,000. The Narendra Modi-led Gujarat government-imposed curfew in several cities of the state to curb the rise in violence. Human rights organizations, media, and opposition parties accused the Modi government of taking unfair and inadequate steps to curb the violence. In April 2009, a Special Investigation Team (SIT) was appointed by the Supreme Court to investigate the role played by the government and Modi. The SIT submitted a report to the court in December 2010 stating that they could not find any evidence against Modi. However, the SIT was accused of hiding evidence in July 2013.
As a result, various opposition parties and allies pressured the BJP to demand Modi's resignation from the post of Chief Minister. But in the subsequent elections, BJP won an absolute majority by winning 127 seats out of 182 seats.

Third term (2007 to 2012)

In 2010, 60 out of 112 tehsils achieved normal groundwater levels. This resulted in the increased production of genetically modified Bt cotton. During 2001–2007, the agricultural growth rate in Gujarat increased by 9.6 percent and in the decade 2001–2010, the compound annual growth rate in Gujarat reached 10.97 percent, the highest among all states in India.
A radical change in the electricity supply system in rural areas helped to promote agriculture.
The Sadbhavana Mission or Goodwill Mission was organized in late 2011 and early 2012 to reach the Muslim community in the state. Modi believed that the move would "strengthen Gujarat's environment with peace, unity, and harmony."
