Some of the key highlights of the report:

  • Narendra Modi continues to be at the top of the most mentioned political leaders index with almost five times more buzz than LK Advani at the 2nd position.
  • ‘Development and Economy’ which was the plank on which Narendra Modi had entered conversations has dropped over a period of time. Even though in June 2013, this theme has jumped up, when compared to May, however total mentions under the theme have witnessed a decline. ‘Law, order and internal affairs’ is driving more conversations now as compared to ‘Development and economy’
  • Nitish Kumar who dropped to the 17th position in May 2013, climbed up to the 4th position in June 2013. This was the first time in past five months, Nitish Kumar made it to the top 5 Most Mentioned Political Leaders list.
  • Arvind Kejriwal, who was the 5th most mentioned politician in our January – April 2013 report, dropped to the 6th position in the month of May, and now saw a further dip to the 7th position in June 2013.
