Following 26th February, in the days after the Balakot airstrike, the Centre’s performance rating had peaked, touching the highest level of 62.06 on March 7. Till 22nd March, the rating had remained in the 50s.
On March 7, around 51.32 per cent respondents had said they were “very satisfied” with the BJP government. However, the net approval rating has been in constant decline since then. The net approval rating takes into account all the responses, IANS reported.
On January 1, the Centre’s net approval rating was 32.4 and remained between 30 and 40 for the entire month. It rose steadily after the Pulwama attack took place on 14th February. The attack was followed by the Balakot air strikes resulting in a sharp rise in the approval rating.
The rating is based on survey where people were asked if they are “very satisfied”, “satisfied to some extent”, “not satisfied” and “don’t know/can’t say” about the performance of the Modi-led government.
