BJP leaders on Sunday cited a global survey in which Prime Minister Narendra Modi is ranked as the leader with the highest approval rating, as saying it shows popular support for his pro-people policies.
Morning Consult data, which regularly tracks popularity ratings from a host of world leaders, has placed PM Modi at the top of a list with 70 percent approval, including US President Joe Biden and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
“The highest position for the country’s top leader, Narendra Modi, in the global endorsement ranking is a matter of pride and honor for the country. This is the result of people’s blessings for his welfare policies for the masses,” said BJP president J.P. Nadda.
The party’s chief spokesman and Rajya Sabha MP Anil Baluni said India’s prestige has risen in an unprecedented way under Prime Minister Modi.
BJP spokesman Sambit Patra said: “Global leader with the highest approval ratings, that is our Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji with 70 percent approval ratings. Congratulations.”
