NEW DELHI, May 26, 2018 (BSS/PTI)- Citing media surveys, the BJP on Saturday claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was the "most popular leader" in the country, leaving Congress president Rahul Gandhi far behind.
Modi was the first choice as the prime minister of over 70 per cent respondents in two surveys, way ahead of Gandhi.
According to another media survey, 34 per cent of the respondents chose Modi as the most popular leader in the country, compared to Gandhi's 24 per cent.
"These surveys have again proved that Prime Minister Modi is the most popular leader (in the country). This is a matter of satisfaction for the BJP and its workers. The entire country likes the prime minister for the way he runs the government. We are proud that our party has given the country's most hard-working prime minister," BJP's media head Anil Baluni said.
The common man liked Modi because he worked selflessly for the country, Baluni added.
