Prime Minister Narendra Modi is still having an overwhelming popularity even after 3 years. Nearly 9 out of 10 Indians give their favourable opinion of PM Narendra Modi. More than two-third Indians are satisfied with PM Modi’s way for making India grow.
Former Gujarati Chief Minister Narendra Modi won the biggest parliamentary majority in three decades in 2014 election.
The oppositions have also blamed PM Modi for slowing down economic growth with the demonetisation and GST rate. But the Think Tank Pew survey found that 88 per cent of Indians gave their favourable view of Narendra Modi.
Well, this such high rating is generally not usual for political leaders 3 years into office in South Asia. Narendra Modi got 31 percentage points higher than that of Congress President Sonia Gandhi and 30 percent higher than ‘Yuvraj’ Rahul Gandhi.
Pew said in comments,
“Three years into Modi’s five-year tenure, the honeymoon period for his administration may be over but the public’s love affair with current conditions in India is even more intense,”
This survey was held in February-March after the demonetisation. People faced many difficulties during the demonetisation period. But still people showed their faith in Narendra Modi.
In June 2017 quarter, economic growth eased to 3-years low and experts said the reason was demonetisation and GST.
But the poll found that more than 80 percent of those surveyed said economic conditions were good, up 19 percentage points since just before the 2014 election. “Overall, seven-in-ten Indians are now satisfied with the way things are going in the country. This positive assessment of India’s direction has nearly doubled since 2014,” Pew said.
The next election will be in 2019 but several states’ assembly’s elections are coming soon. So it shows PM Narendra Modi’s popularity and Indians’ faith in him.
