The Balakot airstrikes by Indian Air Force on Jaish-e-Mohammed terror camps on February 26 has seemed to have pushed up the popularity of Prime Minister Narendra Modi by leaps and bounds.

According to the latest survey by C-Voter (for Republic TV) to gauge the national approval ratings, the vote for Narendra Modi touched 64.3% at the end of the survey period, as against Congress president Rahul Gandhi, who stood at 26.6%.

The survey was conducted between February 1 and March 7.

Initially, the popularity of PM Modi was pegged at 53% and that of Rahul Gandhi at 36.2%. But post Pulwama terror attacks, the gap between the approval rates of the two leaders began to widen rapidly.

The surge in the popularity of Pm Modi is attributed to the decisive steps taken by his government, allowing the IAF to penetrate into Pakistani airspace, following the Pulwama terror attacks on February 14.
