Citing a global survey which has put Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the leader with the highest approval rating across the world, senior BJP leaders including home minister Amit Shah and party president J P Nadda on Sunday said it showed ‘popular support’ to the PM Mod’s ‘pro-people policies’.
The survey conducted by Morning Consult, which tracks popularity ratings of a host of global leaders, has put PM Modi with 70% approval on the top of the list. The list also includes US President Joe Biden and UK PM Boris Johnson, whose approval rating is far below that of Modi.
“Self-reliant India and its hard-working leadership are leading the world. PM Narendra Modi continues to top the list of world’s most popular leaders with a 70% global approval rating,” Shah said and added, “It is a symbol of the unwavering faith of every Indian in the works and visionary leadership of Modi ji.” Nadda said, “The highest ranking for Narendra Modi in the global approval rating is a matter of pride and honour for the country. This is a result of people’s blessings to his welfare policies for the masses.” The party's chief spokesperson and Rajya Sabha MP Anil Baluni said India's prestige has risen in an unprecedented manner under Modi.
