Sixty percent of Indians are satisfied with Narendra Modi government’s performance even though a majority finds it sliding on most parameters measuring their economic well-being, a survey conducted by Local Circles indicates.
Today, May 16, marks the third anniversary of the NDA’s victory in the Lok Sabha elections. Over 40,000 respondents registered on the Local Circles website that received 2,00,000 votes from over 200 cities.
The NDA government, in the first three years of its tenure, either met or exceeded expectations of 61% of the people while 59% were of the view that it is well on track to fulfil pre-poll promises.
This was despite the negative sentiments people had about the government’s performance on crucial parameters, including job creation, prices of essential commodities and cost of living, healthcare facilities and services, crime against women and children, cleanliness in cities and the effect of demonetisation in reducing corruption.
Of the missions the government has launched, direct benefit transfer (DBT) got the highest approval (47%) and Make in India the lowest (8%).
The areas in which the Modi government scored high in the survey were foreign policy, especially vis-à-vis Pakistan, handling of issues relating to communalism, infrastructure development and performance in Parliament in terms of delivery on key bills.
