Statistics have a way of hiding more than they reveal. However, our opinion poll on the three years of the Modi government faces no such confusion.

Only recently the Narendra Modi-led juggernaut proved unstoppable in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand. It’s only to be expected, then, that public ratings for the Modi government would be high.

What is surprising, however, is the extent of support for PM Modi and his policies. And, this support spans across classes, geographies, and vocations.

Ratings for the PM in the corporate world remain unaffected, and are rock solid, as our survey reveals, notwithstanding his belated decision to distance himself from cor porates. The survey reveals that the Modi administration has significantly bettered governance; is well on its way towards implementing its manifesto promises; and has got excellent performers in ministers handling Power, Infrastructure and Railways portfolios.

Job creation remains a worry, though. Same with the issue surrounding NPAs.

Two facts stand out in the survey — that people believe that Modi is “India’s best ever PM”. And that he will come back to power in 2019. The surprise element? That BJP leader and MP Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan could replace Modi one day!
