More than 93 per cent people support the move to demonetise the old 500 and 1000 rupee notes, it said. Of the over 5 lakh responses so far, only 2 per cent have rated the move as ‘very poor’ or ‘one star’, the survey result said. More than 90 per cent of the respondents feel the government’s move to tackle black money is above fourstar rating, the survey result says. Around 73 per cent of them give it fivestar rating of ‘brilliant’.
Opposition parties question survey Meanwhile, Opposition parties questioned the credibility of the survey as well as the responses to it. “We should focus on who would be the respondent, some urban-centric people who have known PM Modi and voted for him.
I completely disagree with this,” said Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi. CPI leader D Raja also questioned the survey results, saying, “Rural India has no access to Apps. This is not a reflection of the real picture.”
