On November 21, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked people to participate in a survey to gauge the mood of Indian citizens after his demonetisation move. “I want your first-hand view on the decision taken regarding currency notes. Take part in the survey on the NM App,” he tweeted. A day later, he shared the results. After 500,000 responses from 2,000 locations across the country, the result said that over 90 per cent people were in favour of the move and believed that black money exists in India, that the menace needs to be eliminated and the government’s move to tackle the issue is good.

But many on social media pointed out that the options to choose from given in the survey had no option to disagree with the statement. And that is what became a talking point on the Internet. In fact, the credibility of the survey was even questioned by the Opposition. “We should focus on who would be the respondents, some urban-centric people who have known PM Modi and voted for him. I completely disagree with this. Secondly, the kind of questions asked. There was no ‘disagree’ option and rural people have not participated in this survey,” said Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi.

According to the app results, 43 per cent people replied that they did not “mind the inconvenience faced in our fight to curb corruption, black money, terrorism and counterfeiting of currency” while 48 per cent said it bothered them somewhat but that it was worth it. There was no other option.

In the meantime, some Netizens took the aid of humour to express their view on the app and its results.

            Actually - PM is very much aware the mood of the people. By demonetization, he got good appreciation but still he is having 3 years. If result not come, then full majority making govt. not possible by BJP. lt;br/gt;Farmers, Labor, Daily wages workers, small scale industry, rediwala, thelawala, suffered lots due to the decision of demonetization.lt;br/gt;Gap in poor vs rich until and unless not in balance. no effect will come.
