India TV CNX Opinion Poll: Narendra Modi becomes first choice for PM after IAF strike

The decisive strike on Jaish-e-Mohammed's terror camp in Pakistan's Balakote by the Indian Air Force seems to be bending the political wave in Priem Minister Narendra Modi's favour. In the first opinion poll conducted after the IAF strike on terror camps, India TV-CNX have found that Narendra Modi is people's first choice for the PM post in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. 

A total of 5,400 respondents participated in the India TV-CNX Opinion Poll out of which 2,477 were women. The opinion poll was conducted between March 1 to 4 in 27 parliamentary constituencies in Uttar Pradesh. India TV-CNX has kept the margin of error to 2.5 per cent.

Polled people were asked who should be the next Prime Minister of our country? Over half the respondents, 54.05 per cent said it should be PM Modi.

The opinion poll comes after last Tuesday's air strikes on Jaish-e-Mohammed terror camps in Pakistan, a retaliation to the February 14 attack on CRPF jawans in Pulwama in Kashmir, in which 40 personnel were killed.
