Telugu Desam Party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu is the worst chief minister of any state in the country ruled by the BJP or NDA, if one were to go by the results of a survey conducted by popular online survey agency MyVoteToday through twitter.
Out of the final four chief ministers short-listed, Naidu was declared the worst chief minister of the NDA-ruled states with 50 per cent of the votes polled.
In all, 91,457 netizens participated in the online voting, While Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti stood in the second position with 27 per cent of votes, Rajasthan chief minister Vasudhara Raje Scindia came third with 12 per cent of votes and Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar secured the fourth position with 11 per cent votes.
Interestingly, by November 27, Naidu was in the fourth position with only 5,011 out of 54,691 people (less than nine per cent) voting him as the worst CM.
While Mehbooba Mufti was leading with 8,084 votes, followed by Khattar (7,362) and Bihar’s Nitish Kumar (5172). In all, 12 NDA chief ministers were there in the contest for the worst CM award.
But within one week, Naidu was shown to have reached the top with 50 per cent of the voters (which means nearly 46,000 voters) declaring him as the worst among the worst. Which means, more than 40,000 people voted against him within one week.
How it happened and what methodology the surveyors followed for it is still not known.
The Bengaluru-based MyVoteToday has claimed that it is a polling platform for the people to voice their opinions, which will be converted into ground-level action.
According to this start-up, if a certain poll hits a certain number, it automatically gets converted into a petition, which will be sent to the relevant people.
