New Delhi, May 16: Good news for the Prime Minister Narendra Modi government at the Centre. Just days before the National Democratic Alliance is set to celebrate its three years in power at the Centre on May 26, a survey report reveals that around 61 per cent of Indians are happy with the government's performance.
The expectations from the Bharatiya Janata Party-led NDA government are huge. Such a high approval rating of the Modi government after three years of governance is a great news for PM Modi and his cabinet colleagues.
The Modi government came to power on the slogan of Achhe din aane waale hain (Good days are coming). Thus a huge amount of responsibility lies on the ruling government to bring overall development in the country.
