After nearly 3 years of Narendra Modi government, 61 per cent people happy but dissatisfaction rises over last year

Published on May 16 2017 - - India - -

On May 26, the Narendra Modi government will complete three years in power. Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister of India riding high on the aspirations and expectations of people, who waited for ‘achhe din’ – the slogan which propelled the Bharatiya Janata Party to become the first political party in 30 years to win a majority on its own in the Lok Sabha.
Three years down the line, the Modi government faces serious challenges even as the BJP has been on an election winning spree. A survey conducted by citizen engagement platform LocalCirles shows that while a majority of Indians still have faith in the Modi government, there are subtle signs of desperation.
The survey results are based on over 2,00,000 votes collated from over 200 places, which included tier-I, II and III cities as well as rural areas. The average age of the participants was 32 years.61 PER CENT SATISFIED, DISSATISFACTION GROWING
The overall result of the survey presents a happy picture for the Modi government as 61 per cent people said the government has met their expectations in the last three years.
Over 60 per cent support for the government can be seen as a good measure of success for an elected government in a country where around 30-40 per cent of votes can place a party or coalition in power.
But, the micro results of the survey may pose challenges for the Narendra Modi government. About 17 per cent people said that the government has exceeded their expectations in the three years. Last year, 18 per cent thought government was performing beyond their expectations.Around 44 per cent citizens said that the government performed on the expected lines. This is two percentage points down from the last year’s survey, when 46 per cent people held that opinion.
Over the past one year, dissatisfaction with the government has risen by three per cent points with 39 per cent of people saying that the Modi government’s performance was below expectation. During the last year’s survey 36 per cent people expressed dissatisfaction.
However, a positive finding for the Narendra Modi government is that around 59 per cent of the citizens polled believe that the government would fulfill the promises made in the election manifesto.
