Modi government most trusted in the world, voted by 73% Indians: Report

India trusts its government the most, according to the latest report by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

The report states that an estimated 73% of Indians have faith in the Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party government, the highest in the world.

On May 26, 2014, Narendra Modi took oath as the Prime Minister of India after the BJP-led NDA secured a mammoth majority - unseen in the last 30 years - in the parliamentary polls.

The Narendra Modi government has completed more than half its tenure and the Prime Minister has been successful in ensuring political stability and providing decisive leadership with bold decisions, which were both acclaimed as well as bitterly criticised over the last three years.

India is followed by the Canadian government headed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau which has the trust of 62 per cent citizens.

Notably, the United States government led by President Donald Trump has the support of just 30% of the people while trust in the Theresa May government stands at 41 per cent, the report said.

Turkey, which witnessed a failed coup attempt in 2016 along with Russia and Germany are the other three countries rounded off the top five with confidence levels at 58 per cent, 58 per cent and 55 per cent respectively.

Greece, which had to bear the brunt of the immigration crisis while struggling with a failing economy, is at the bottom of the table with a mere 13% of citizens expressing confidence in it.

According to the report, the trust in the government is strongly correlated with citizens' approval of their country's leadership and perceived spread of corruption in government in OECD countries. Where governments are perceived to have high moral integrity, more people trust the government. Similarly, the actions of country leaders and the resulting public opinion about them may have an impact on the public perception of the government institutions they represent.

When 73% of Indians strongly believe in PM Mr.Modi government, why opposition parties are not supporting it. It may be due to their political compulsions, but national interest must be preserved keeping aside the politics.
