In May 2014, he and his party emerged triumph, winning 282 of the 543 seats in the Lok Sabha. The conquest marked a crushing beating to the Indian National Congress, which had been in power for most of the earlier 60 years, and sent a clear message that Indian nationals were behind a menu that moved away from a socialist, secular state to a more investor-leaning economy.

However soon the people realized that it was in the best interest of the country and gave it thumbs up.

A lot of Muslim women appreciated this effort by the prime minister.
Even though his policies were praised, he was malign for failing to make changes in overall human development. He was also heavily criticized for his initiative of clean Ganga. He was praised for strengthening ties with various countries across the globe.
The reason why he became a popular figure in India was that there were hardly any corruption issues during his government. He also delivered many of the promises that he made. Moreover, he became a public hero after the surgical strike that he did on Pakistan soil to show that he is here to fight terrorism.
