GST, farmers suicide, demonetisation, BJP, Congress, rahul gandhi, sonia gandhi, Trinamool congress, TMC, india news Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

With 73 per cent people having faith in Narendra Modi government, India is one of the leading countries in terms of people with most confidence in their government, a report published by OEPD says. According to findings of OECD’s Government at a Glance report 2017, which analyses “the latest available data on public administrations” across countries, India is at third position on “Trust in government” chart, following Indonesia, which is at second position with around 79 per cent people’s confidence. Switzerland, with 80 per cent people having trust in their government leads the global index of countries with most confidence in their country, as per the report.

According to the report, the word “Trust” can be defined as “positive perception about the actions of an individual or an organisation”. The report further says that the “positive perception” is largely determined “by subjective assessment of individuals”. The report adds that trust in government may lead to “effectiveness of government” and “economic development”. “Trust in government leads to greater compliance with regulations and the tax system, facilitates social and political consensus, enhances the acceptance of policies that call for short-term sacrifices by citizens, and mobilises citizen engagement to enable open and inclusive governance processes,” it says.

Around 30 per cent people have faith in US government, the report says, while PM Theresa May’s government in Britain enjoys a confidence of 41 per cent people. South Korea, which has faced massive corruption scandal following the impeachment of Prime Minister Park Geun-hye, has lost people’s confidence and lies at the bottom of the pack with 25 per cent people having confidence in their government. Greece, which has struggled with economic crisis over the years, lies at the bottom of the chart with 13 per cent people expressing confidence in their government, as per the report.

The report cites data collected by Gallup World Poll (GWP), which collects evidence from perception surveys to measure the level of trust on an annual basis for OECD countries. The data is collected “based on proportional stratified probability sampling” and a sample size of around 1000 citizens for most countries is used for the purpose, the report says. It further cites the limitation on its research method that the data is measured on the basis of a single question of whether the people have trust or not in their national government, but does not take any particular areas of national governance in its ambit of research.

    Does it mean that 27 of Indians who do not have trust in Prime Minister Narendra Modiji's represents 69 of electorates who have not voted for Narendra Modiji's in 2014 Parliamentary Elections?

          This is not a Survey done by any of the lefties running some NGO in the Ins utional Area of Delhi or done by some JNU types. It was undertaken by foreigners working for the organisation called Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, formed by All the Western countries. So, they had no MOTIVES like our lefties to "down grade" or "rubbish" any replies they got to their Survey questions.

          Combination of Vision (of the larger picture), Intelligence (to implement policies) and forbearance (to ignore / tolerate Media Mischief, Abuse - "Psychopath, Mad, Hitler" -) is, indeed, very RARE. Repairing and Rearranging this HUGE County after SIXTY years of Misrule, is NOT for the faint hearted. When seasoned leaders of Congress (O) won the national elections against Indira Gandhi, they could not rise to the opportunities presented to REVERSE the Corruption-Quota-Licence Raj. So, Indiraji came back. Modiji has proved himself in Gujarath for over TWELVE years that his worth as a Leader. His critics like Kejriwal and Mumtaz, and Lallu are the ordinary, bankrupt, vote bank politicians, are the ones who add the shine to Modiji's quality. Ignore the ISI funded I.T. Cell members shouting in these forums, wasting their time. SEVENTY THREE per cent is low.... It may be EIGHTY per cent.....imo...

                If Modi was so effective in already rich and prosperous Gujarat, can you please help me understand followings: 1. Why Gujarat public schools are as pathetic as other states? 2. Why Gujarat public hospitals are not trusted as compared to private ones? 3. Why Gujaratis still make a bee line for US Visa? Point 1 and 2 are more important - as they directly impact people like me...Middle class tax payers who don't want to spend money on Private schools and Hospitals along with paying for ries of Govt school teachers and doctors.

                  The results are possible to be right, it all depend on views and some facts... at the moment it show that the prices of the commodities are down... it is true ... demand is less than supply, this is driving the prices down... public do not have the money to buy... therefore, the seller reduce the price to survive and even sell at a loss......

                      I agree with u Luis. Even the Media and News are becoming Modis Bhakths and spreding modi chants to the world. Today every Indian irritated of Modi policy and government. If we have ballot elections in 2019 definitely Modi wont win.

                        You better leave the country. Modi in 2019 is a foregone conclusion. there is not a single politician in the country who can face Modi and win.

                          "Undefined", Due to Media Mischief, Khaliffas and Luises have developed an unthinking hatred of the BJP and an equally unthinking faith in the "Secooler" parties, especially, those that keep up their rhetoric against "commoonal forces"... Any Hindu who openly practices and talks about his / her religion is "commoonal" according to them... They need to be more intelligent and tolerant of Hindus.

                              "Murthy" and Anonymous, have developed an unthinking love for BJP , who think only BJP is the savior of the county and no one else can do better job. Any criticism of BJP is taken as anti national. even the useless Media. Look around you, RSS Thugs have taken over without any consequences, beating up people, Lynching, even the BJP leaders wife beating up a fender bender for minor discretion infront of police, what does this tell you. What do you think this country only belongs to Hindus? Its happening because Media is not reporting these incidents , godfather F Eku will look after us!! Come 2019 without the helping hand of electronic machines FE KU bye Bye.

                              If you seek RURAL opinion .. you might get a CARDIAC ARREST ... Bcos rural folks are 100 in favor of Modi ... Please note, that only opinion of NATIVE HINDOOS matters ... Foreigners encroachers , such as mussalmaans christoos, are IRRELEVANT to the discussion ... Only North-East xtians who are coverted tribals , Goans who are converted hindoos, will be retained ... All OTHER hindoo-hater xtians, such as foreigner syrian xtians, will be thrown out ... As for the katelas, well they will simply be eliminated

                                  The state of Gujarat has produced great visionaries like Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Patel, and now Modi who would be the next visionary to transform India into a great economic/military power in South Asia. Unlike Manmohan Singh who was a puppet of Sonia, Modi is a capable leader, a charismatic personality, as well as a capable leader. It is obvious that the remaining 27 per cent who didn't support are mostly the Christians/Muslims who are blinded by their religion and vote blindly for the congress and think that that they secular/inclusive but they are NOT, the communists, and the TMC.

                                    George Brother, Very good points ......At least some of the 27 per cent may be those that lost out in the DM and some may be Dynasty Bhakts who had a great time for over FIFTY Years as part of the LOOTYEN'S Dhelli Circle.....
