On Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi completed 20 years in public office with more than 13 years as the Chief Minister of Gujarat, and the rest as the Prime Minister of India.

Home Minister Amit Shah, who has been a close aide of Modi for over three decades, said the journey of good governance and development that started on this day in 2001 when he took oath for the first time as chief minister has continued uninterrupted. 

The prime minister has worked day and night for the people and country's progress, he said. 

Modi served as Gujarat CM between 2001 and 2014.

BJP president JP Nadda said Modi pulled the country out of an atmosphere of disappointment and put it on the path to progress and becoming "vishwa guru" (world leader). 

The prime minister has worked like a "karma yogi" and infused people with self-confidence about making a new India, Nadda said. 

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh also congratulated the prime minister, saying these 20 years have not only been dedicates to people's welfare but have also been untainted. 

May his popularity keep rising, he said.
