Sunil Bhatt, a Gujarat-based professional, has completed what is possibly the first PhD thesis on prime minister Narendra Modi.

The thesis, titled ‘Leadership, Governance and Development: A case study of Shri Narendra Modi’, has been accepted at the Veer Narmad South Gujarat University, Surat. The research was carried out under the guidance of Dr Kiran Pandya, who is a professor with the department of human resource development.
 
Bhatt started the PhD in March 2013, though he says, “I had been thinking about this topic since 2009”. Bhatt, an HR professional, is honorary general secretary of Dahej Industries Association and chairman of the HR forum of the Bharuch District Management Association.
 
He previously worked with several multinational companies, and the plants of two of them, in Gujarat, were inaugurated by Modi as chief minister of the state. That was when the budding scholar met the leader and was “inspired by his leadership style and approach to good governance”. This prompted him to do further research on Modi’s leadership style “which impacted the governance mechanism resulting in development”.
 
Bhatt, who also calls does farming in spare time in his village, Sajod in Ankleshwar, conducted in-depth interviews of people who worked with Modi. He also conducted a survey of industries to examine the governance mechanism facilitating development.
 
The thesis examines Modi’s leadership in six categories: ‘leadership role’, ‘ensuring delivery’, ‘working effectively with Individuals and in team’, ‘exercise effective control’, ‘behaving with integrity’, ‘openness’ and ‘accountability’.
