Narendra Modi: A Political Biography written by Andy Marino

The book titled Narendra Modi: A Political Biography was recently published. The biography was written by Andy Marino and published by Harper Collins. Andy Marino is a British author and TV producer.


The book deals with the Godhra riots in Gujarat in 2002 in some detail with hitherto unpublished, authenticated documents. It discloses that after the riots Modi wanted to resign as chief minister but was prevailed upon by his party to continue. In the book Modi has disclosed that he was sad about the 2002 Gujarat riots but has no guilt, and that no court has come even close to establishing it.

The book states that Modi had appealed to his counterparts in three neighbouring states, Ashok Ghelot in Rajasthan, Vilasrao Deshmukh in Maharashtra and Digvijaya Singh in Madhya Pradesh, to send aid in the form of law enforcement and para-military personnel.  While Maharashtra had sent a very limited number of personnel to help, the other two states had quietly refused.
