Commenting on the findings of the survey, Parijat Chakraborty, Country Service Line Leader, Public Affairs, Corporate Reputation, ESG and CSR, Ipsos India, said, “Some of the big bang initiatives like opening of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya (92 per cent approval rating in north zone validates it), temple in the UAE, taking a stand on global issues independent of the influence of any Western power, initiatives in space, hosting the G20 Summit successfully in India, and giving a fillip to Make in India, have all contributed to the spike in the approval ratings of the Prime Minister.”

The survey shows the areas where the Modi government has performed well are primarily in the fields of education, sanitation and cleanliness and healthcare system. In the other areas, the government has passed and not flunked.
