As Prime Minister Narendra Modi is celebrating the completion of his nine-year reign and entered into tenth year, he has got a new booster ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha polls as the latest survey has revealed that about 50 per cent of the people want to become the Prime Minister again after the general elections. The survey has come when the opposition parties are engineering a plan to defeat Modi and oust the BJP regime.
For the opposition parties, the BJP's biggest debacle in Karnataka gave a hope that their efforts to defeat BJP in 2024 would bear fruit. However, the survey conducted by ABP and C Voter shocked the opposition as it has shown that around 49 per cent of people who took the survey had expressed desire that Narendra Modi should rule the country for the third consecutive term.
The Modi-led BJP regime has completed its nine-year rule on Friday - May 26 and to mark the moment, the saffron party has been conducting celebrations across the country and recently, while speaking at an event in Assam, Union Home Minister Amit Shah asserted that Modi would become the Prime Minister for the third time. Amid BJP's campaign of circulating Modi's achievements in nine years, the party also got a token of advantage through the survey results.
The ABP- C Voter had conducted the survey on who should become the Prime Minister next year across the country and as per the results, 49 per cent of the people who took the survey want Modi to be the Prime Minister while 18 per cent of people had expressed their wish that Congress leader Rahul Gandhi should become the Prime Minister. While six per cent of voters want Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to become the Prime Minister, Delhi's Arvind Kejriwal and West Bengal's Mamata Banerjee have received 5 per cent and 2 per cent of votes respectively.
The survey results have also revealed that three in five Indians think that Narendra Modi is taking strong and powerful decisions as the Prime Minister. In another survey done by C Voter, as many as 70.5 per cent of the respondents to the survey said that they are satisfied with the BJP-led Union government. While 27.6 respondents expressed their dissatisfaction over the BJP's rule, 2.36 per cent wished not to comment on the matter.
The approval rating for Modi as per the C Voter survey has gone high this year, compared to the last. According to the survey done in 2022, 68.85 per cent of the respondents were satisfied with the BJP-led Union government and the number has increased this year to 70.5 per cent. Narendra Modi was sworn-in as the Prime Minister of India on May 26, 2014 and in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, BJP won the election with a clear majority and Modi became the Prime Minister for the second time.
