It has been just over two years since Narendra Modi was sworn in as the Prime Minister of India. To mark its second anniversary, the BJP has planned massive celebrations across the country, highlighting the NDA government's achievements and welfare programmes.

Two years into his tenure, Modi is the second most-liked world leader on Facebook, according to the social media giant.

Modi also has developed a reputation for knowing exactly where the cameras are at any given time, and giving perfect poses. His recent picture with his mother at the PM's official residence, 7 Race Course Road, has 1.6 million likes, 120,000+ shares and 34,000 comments on Facebook.

Another important feature of his travels across the world has been his fashion statement. His signature kurta-churidar and safari suits have been ever present, and has received as much attention as his statecraft in print and on social networking sites.
