In a big win for Modi government, 2020 Edelman Trust Barometer, in a survey conducted by a global communications and PR firm headquartered in the US, revealed that 87% of Indians have faith in the Modi government during COVID-19 crisis.
The survey was conducted on the government of the countries in terms of handling the coronavirus pandemic. The Indian government has got tremendous support from Indians, leaving Japan, the US, Canada behind in the list.
According to a survey conducted in America, China had 90% approval ratings, followed by India with a trust rating of 87%. Countries such as Japan and the US are in the top 10 list with trust ratings of 48% or lower.
Expressing his views on this year’s survey, the firm’s CEO Richard Edelman stated, “We are living in a trust paradox. Since we began measuring trust 20 years ago, economic growth has fostered rising trust. This continues in Asia and the Middle East but not in developed markets, where national income inequality is now the more important factor. Fears are stifling hope, and long-held assumptions about hard work leading to upward mobility are now invalid.”
It is a proud moment for every Indian that the approval rating for India has risen to 87% from 80%. The survey depicts that 80 % of Indians approved their ratings for the Modi-led BJP government before. Now, India’s approval rating has improved to 87%, making it a 2nd country in the world in the fight against the pandemic.
Most surprisingly, the countries with the lowest approval ratings had released the largest economic relief packages to combat the coronavirus outbreak. For example, Japan had allocated 117 trillion Japanese Yen (Rs 87,000 cr) during the COVID-19 pandemic but somehow failed to win popular vote.
It is being told that the entire world has been lauding Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s management of the coronavirus pandemic.
Ever since PM Narendra Modi took charge at the head of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in 2014, the vision of India has been changed and the world’s perception towards India is also changing.
