New Delhi: BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi had many more “NO” votes than Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber and polled far fewer popular votes than AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal in a TIME 100 list of the most influential people in the world live poll as of late Sunday.
The voting closes on April 22 and the final result will be announced on April 24.
Modi, who opinion polls project as set to take over as India's next prime minister post the ongoing general elections, had polled 'NO' votes close to six, on a scale of one to 10. Bieber had polled fewer negative votes.
Bieber in fact polled more YES votes than Modi.
The person topping the list was US actress Katy Perry, followed by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal who had as many YES votes as her and fewer NOs.
Modi was at ninth spot, below popular singer Beyonce Knowles and actor Benedict Cumberbatch.
However, a tweet showing the graph and the number of NO votes for Modi had his fans swinging into action, with many voting YES and urging others on twitter to do likewise.
On its site, the TIME asks voters if the person should be included in the TIME100 list.
