New Delhi: A US based organisation, in an independent survey, has adjudged Narendra Modi as the most-favoured leader for the post of Prime Minister and majority voted in the favour of Army action to combat terrorism.

In the survey, Modi emerged as a tall leader with support of a whopping 81 per cent of the population.The popularity of Modi, though, has seen marginal decline of six per cent from the last year but still the survey has projected that the government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has a positive impact on Indians.
