To know India’s ‘Mann Ki Baat’ about the Central and State governments, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has launched a survey on the official app of Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi. The study has been launched after the Modi-led government completed four years at the Centre. With few months for the 2019 Lok Sabha election, as the name of the survey suggests it seems that the Prime Minister is checking out people’s pulse. The detailed online survey enables citizens to rate the performance of the government in areas such as price rise, law and order, education, cleanliness, farmer welfare, employment, animal husbandry and more.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the initiative on his official Twitter account. He writes, “It is your voice that counts! Tell me what you feel about the working of the Central Government, its initiatives and the development work in your constituency. Take part in this survey on the NaMo App.”

In the survey, the PM asks for feedback on governance issues, the performance of the local MPs and MLAs. It also sought suggestions for the Prime Minister.
To take the survey on the NaMo app, one needs to register to the app.
Register on the app, by filling the following details:
Page one, asks you to fill: Full Name, e-mail address, phone number, areas of interest and date of birth.
People’s Pulse survey
Once you are done with the registration process, you can take the survey. In a section called ‘People’s Pulse’, the survey asks citizens to rate areas as per their considerations where they can rate on the topics between ‘very poor’ and ‘excellent’.
Once you log in, select your preferred language and state.
The first page of the survey asks about the progress achieved by the Central government in healthcare, employment, rural electrification, economy, national security, Swachh Bharat, farmer prosperity and more.
The second page of the survey asks you about the speed and scale of government has improved.
The next pages ask about how you will rate the performance of the state and central government.
The survey also asks you about the points you consider important when you are voting.
It asks citizens to choose the three most popular BJP leaders from their constituency and state level and rate them. The one who gets maximum votes in the survey will be considered strongly by BJP’s 14-member Central Election Committee (CEC) headed by PM Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah.
It will give a chance for people to rate the work of their MPs and MLAs, leaving them worried about the denial of tickets.
It also asks people about the prime considerations while voting and the condition of various amenities and infrastructure in their constituency.
The last page of the online survey seeks to know people’s opinion on the flagship programmes of the BJP, suggestions for the PM and whether you are interested in volunteering for the BJP 2019 elections.
To make sure there a large number of participants in the survey, BJP’s IT team will ask at least 10,000 people in every constituency to download the app.
The Narendra Modi app was launched in July 2017 and has been downloaded by over 5 million users. The app allows people to listen to ‘Mann Ki Baat’ editions of PM Narendra Modi, read his blogs and get updates on various tasks by the government. In the past, the app has been worked as a connectivity platform where the Prime Minister has interacted with the common people. After demonetisation was announced in November 2016, a survey was hosted on the app to ask citizens about the move that saw millions of participation.
