FAQs on Modi

With elections declared in India, the opposition parties are making false allegations against Modi to tarnish his image to gain electoral advantage.  IN the attached excel file I have tried to list all the accusations and provided a fact check thereon.  If you have any further questions about Modi please do feel free to ask.  This excel sheet will NOT persuade die hard anti Modi people to change their views since they are NOT interested in facts BUT those who are getting misled would be persuaded to do critical analysis before any misinformation is pushed down their throats.  This site will be updated at regular intervals and is meant to be a source to address misinformation.
