Modi’s appeal in India is clouded by jobs, prices and corruption, according to a survey.

NEW DELHI, India (Reuters) – Lack of jobs, rising inflation, and declining incomes in India caused voters to reduce their support for Narendra Modi during the general elections, where his Bharatiya Janata Party failed to win a majority, according to a poll.

Modi’s charismatic leadership, however, was the main reason for his alliance to be given another term. He was named leader of the National Democratic Alliance on Wednesday, which won a majority. This is the first time that his Hindu nationalist BJP needs to rely on regional parties to form a government.

The NDA has won 293 of the 543 seats of the lower house, which is more than the 272 simple majority needed to form a new government. The BJP only won 240.

The INDIA coalition led by Rahul’s Congress party, a centrist party, won more than 230 seats. This was higher than expected.

An NDA leader, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that Modi will meet with President Droupadi Mudmu this Friday to stake out his claim for forming a government.

The Hindu reported that at least 30% of voters were concerned about inflation. This is up from 20% before the election. It said that the agency had spoken to nearly 20,000 Indian voters in 23 out of 28 states during the voting period.

According to The Hindu, in a survey conducted prior to the elections, 32% of respondents said that unemployment was their main concern.

The newspaper reported that “this proportion, which was 27% during the election campaign, may have been due to the fact that the promise of employment resonated strongly with voters” in the post-poll study.

According to the survey, voters were also concerned about the decline in income and how the government deals with corruption and scams.

The pre-election survey found that 10% of respondents chose the BJP because of its development efforts, while 21% said the same for Modi’s leadership. This is a double from the previous 10%.

According to a survey, the construction of a grand Hindu Temple in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, in January was the work that the public liked the most. Modi and BJP have cited this event as a landmark several times.

The party, however, was not able to win the Faizabad constituency where Ayodhya lies. The party also did poorly in other parts if Uttar Pradesh, India’s most populous State which sends about 80 legislators to the parliament. The BJP lost 33 seats in the state, down from 62 during the previous election.
