Narendra Modi is the most popular prime ministerial candidate among the people of Rajasthan, a survey conducted by a consumer body has found. The survey said that 67% people of Rajasthan want Modi as prime minister, 16% people want Arvind Kejriwal as PM while only 10% want Rahul Gandhi as the PM.

The survey was conducted by Consumer Unity and Trust Society, an NGO. The NGO conducted the ‘Halat Survey-2014” in 250 villages across 33 districts in Rajasthan.

Another survey was conducted before the assembly elections in Rajasthan in 2013 in which 64% people preferred Modi for the post of prime minister. In this survey prior to general elections, 3% more people have expressed faith in Modi. Only 10% people have expressed faith in the Aam Aadmi Party and a similar percentage in the Congress party.

In the forthcoming general elections, AAP is not likely to have a major impact in Rajasthan, but it would eat into the votes of the Congress. About 62% people said that this was likely to be the case.
