Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been named the 15th most powerful person in the world by Forbes Magazine. He joins Russia’s president Vladimir Putin, who holds the first spot on the Forbes List, followed by U.S President Barrack Obama. He won the prime minister’s post in May when he was elected with a landslide victory, ending the long reign of the Gandhi dynasty that had ruled India for decades. Forbes Magazine described him as a Hindu Nationalist, noting that he played a crucial role in the reconstruction projects in his home state of Gujarat.
