NEW DELHI: Narendra Modi completes one year of being in power as Prime Minister of India on Tuesday. Last year, Modi was elected as the 15th Prime Minister of India on May 16 with a historic win. However, he took oath and resumed office from May 26.

Amid major debates over PM Modi’s performance in past one year, Modi addressed a rally on Monday where he defended his record of one year.

But at the same time, to understand if Narendra Modi is still the mood of the nation, NewsX conducted an Opinion Poll by PollMS where 5, 000 samples were collected from different parts of India including all metro cities and major rural areas. 

While at some places, Narendra Modi is still the choice, on some factors the responses saw a major split. In one of the most direct questions, ‘How will you rate BJP’s govt’s one year performance?’, 56% of the respondents said that it was ‘Good’ followed by 26% who believed it was just ‘average’. 16% said that it was ‘bad’, while 3% stated that they ‘can’t answer’.

However, a big split was witnessed when the samplers were asked to rate PM Modi’s performance in last one year where 64% said that it was ‘good’, 24% average, 14% bad and 2%-can’t say.

Here is the list of further important questions that would explain what the Indian nationals believe about the current Indian government.
