He added, "Together we will script a glorious future for India. Let us together dream of a strong, developed and inclusive India that actively engages with the global community to strengthen the cause of world peace and development."

A short profile was also uploaded on www.pmindia.nic.in which described him as "dynamic, dedicated and determined" leader who "arrives as a ray of hope in the lives of a billion Indians".

Mr Modi's "laser focus on development and his proven ability" to deliver results have made him one of India's most popular leaders, the profile stated.

Though it did not name the RSS, it said, from a very young age, Mr Modi immersed himself in service to the nation, working with "patriotic organisations".

An option called "Wish the Prime Minister" takes users to Mr Modi's personal website.
