New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi is the most Google-searched politician in India, followed by Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, a survey by Google India and research agency TNS released on Tuesday said.
Sonia Gandhi, Manmohan Singh and anti-corruption campaigner, Arvind Kejriwal, follow Rahul.
Similarly, the BJP is the most searched political party and the Congress is on the second spot. Kejriwal`s Aam Aadmi Party, Mayawati`s Bahujan Samaj Party and Shiv Sena are the other political parties on the list.
The survey, released ahead of 2014 General Election, revealed that out of 37% of urban Indian voters who are now online, 42% have still not decided whom they would vote for.
The survey also said that 35% voters believe the local candidate is as important as the political party (36%), in deciding who to vote for. Only 11 percent of such online urban voters would take the voting decision on the basis of the PM candidate of a political party.
The study, conducted between March and September this year, covered 65 constituencies across 59 states and took into consideration the responses by 7,042 registered voters who surf the Internet.
