In a country of 1.4 billion people, Narendra Modi has emerged as a leader who has perhaps set a record when it comes to popularity. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s approval ratings are soaring month by month. Earlier in September 2021, Modi had an approval rating of 70 per cent, the highest among 13 global leaders polled in the survey conducted by The Morning Consult. Now, he has once again emerged as the most popular world leader, with an approval rating of 71 percent.
One might wonder what is about PM Modi that leads him to become a top global leader again and again. Despite national and international propaganda against him, PM Modi’s likability has not been affected a bit. We’ll uncover the facts in this article to tell you what makes PM Modi top Global Leaders’ List, year after year.
Unstoppable PM Modi
PM Modi is ahead of all major world leaders, like US President Joe Biden, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Australian PM Scott Morrison, Canada PM Trudeau, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and others. Undoubtedly, Indians are led by a man who they have complete faith. At a time when the approval ratings of leaders across the world are plummeting due to a variety of reasons, Narendra Modi stands tall as an exception. Notably, in November 2021 too, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had topped the list of most popular world leaders. Moreover, in May 2020, PM Modi had topped the list with the highest approval rating of 84 percent.
Although, India’s opposition parties do not shy away from making use of ‘toolkits’ to try and pin down PM Modi and his government, his popularity is only growing.
However, all these attacks are making people trust him even more.
India won the battle against Covid-19 under PM Modi’s rule
India successfully won the battle against the threat caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. India is administering a high number of Covid-19 vaccine doses every day, and this will eventually lead to the country being able to breathe a sigh of relief. So far, India has on two occasions administered over 1 crore vaccine doses in a single day. In August, India administered more vaccine doses than all G7 nations put together.
One can guess how Modi Government managed to keep its people safe from the fact that India, with a population of 1.4 billion, has witnessed around 4.89 lakhs death till now whereas around 8.9 lakhs deaths have been witnessed in the USA with a population of merely 32.95 crores.
PM Modi revived India’s economy
Under PM Modi’s leadership, India’s gross domestic product (GDP) grew at a record pace of 20.1 per cent in the first quarter of FY22 — the highest-ever GDP growth in a single quarter.
Thereafter, the GST collection numbers released on Wednesday for August showed a 30 per cent increase from the same month the previous year and, crossed the $1 trillion mark for the second consecutive month.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also finely balanced the establishment of a Chanakyan economy with major welfare schemes, aimed at providing immediate relief to India’s poor.
India has consistently improved its ranking in the Global Innovation Index ever since the Modi government came to power. The country was ranked at 81st position in 2015 and currently stands at the 46th position as per the report prepared by the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO).
The country is digitally connected now, and we have pioneered the digital payment sphere to such an extent that developed nations like Singapore are collaborating with India’s revolutionarily UPI system. In 2020, the transaction volume share in India stood at 15.6% and 22.9% for instant payments and other electronic payments respectively.
The record-breaking Unified Payments Interface (UPI) transactions in 2021 both in volume and value terms have added a fur in India’s cap, making it a global e-payments leader. According to data released by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), in December, 4.56 billion UPI transactions worth Rs 8.27 trillion have been recorded.
By far, the most important reform that the Modi government has announced is the redefinition of the term adjusted gross revenue (AGR). Until now, the telecom service providers were required to pay AGR dues to the government which included non-telecom revenue.
As long as India is led by a prominent leader like Narendra Modi, the nation has nothing to fear about.
