Modi to come back in 2019 polls, finds BW Businessworld survey

BW Businessworld has conducted two surveys—a ‘mood of the nation’ survey and a corporate India survey—to find out how likely PM Narendra Modi is to make a comeback in the 2019 polls. According to the surveys, 80% of India as well as 80% of corporate India believe that Modi is likely to come back to power in the 2019 parliamentary elections.

Some of the key findings of the surveys are as follows:

  • As many as 76% of the respondents rate the performance of the Modi government at least “good”. At least 83% of Corporate India terms Modi’s first three years in power at the Centre at least “good”.
  • 62% of India thinks that the Modi government is well on its way of delivering on the BJP’s poll manifesto. The corresponding figure for Corporate India is 67%.
  • 52% of respondents in the ‘mood of the nation’ survey said that governance has “improved significantly” in the Modi regime when compared to the Manmohan regime. In the Corporate India survey, 66% of the respondents said that governance had “improved significantly” in the Modi regime when compared to the Manmohan regime.
  • The top five “most significant achievements” of the Modi government, according to the ‘mood of the nation’ survey were: demonetisation, power sector reforms, surgical strikes, GST, war on corruption and direct subsidy transfer.
  • The top five “most significant achievements” of the Modi government, according to the Corporate India survey, were GST passage, demonetisation, power sector reforms, ease of doing business, surgical strikes and war on corruption.
  • Asked to name the top three PMs who contributed most in India’s development, the top three names were: Narendra Modi, Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Rajiv Gandhi. The top three names in the Corporate India survey were: Narendra Modi, P V Narasimha Rao and Rajiv Gandhi.
  • The top five best-performing Ministers according to the Corporate India survey were: Piyush Goyal, Nitin Gadkari, Suresh Prabhu, Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley.

Both the surveys said that Nitish Kumar could be one leader outside the BJP who could dislodge Modi one day. According to the Corporate India survey, in the BJP, Shivraj Singh Chouhan stands the best chance of replacing Modi one day.

“Our Honorable PM Modi ji has demonstrated what leadership can achieve for a country. Political stability and dynamic leadership augurs well for India’s growth and building a new inclusive India in the next seven years,” said Annurag Batra, Chairman & Editor-in-Chief of BW Businessworld & Exchange4Media group.

Both the surveys, conducted last week, were done in association with the Traverse Strategy Consultants and can be viewed on http://bit.ly/BWModiGovSurvey
