The Wire misreports survey to show Rahul Gandhi is preferred over PM Narendra Modi by MP voters

The Wire in its attempt to discredit BJP leadership has yet again resorted to invent new data and publish factually incorrect reports to suit their agenda.

As the election season begins in the country, the leftist propaganda website, The Wire seems to be back to its usual propaganda of publishing fake news. The Wire, which has a complicated relationship with the truth has now published another report, where it invents fake data from a CSDS-Lokniti survey to claim that Congress President Rahul Gandhi is more liked than Narendra Modi in the Madhya Pradesh.

The Wire, in its dishonest article, has claimed that the recently conducted Lokniti-CSDS Pre Election Surveys has pointed out that Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s likeability in Madhya Pradesh is much higher than Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The Wire in an urgency to invent new narrative right before the state goes to polls seems to have found it tough to comprehend the data published by the CSDS-Lokniti. It has used the data of these pre-election surveys and blatantly misused the data to propagate Rahul Gandhi’s fake ratings, while the actual survey predicts the opposite.

The pre-election survey conducted by Lokniti-CSDS in the states of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chattisgarh suggest completely opposite of what controversial website, The Wire claims in its report. The survey suggests that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was found to be highly liked in all three states. It must be mentioned here the CSDS does not have a very good track record of predicting elections and has often been highly skewed towards the Congress and its allies. In fact, Yogendra Yadav is himself seen as an anti-Modi public figure.

The Lokniti-CSDS survey predicts that PM Narendra Modi’s popularity is high in Madhya Pradesh compared to Rahul Gandhi, opposite to what The Wire suggests. In the survey, 39%  and 25% of the respondents have either “highly liked Modi” or “somewhat like Modi” respectively compared to 33% and 30% to Rahul Gandhi in the same criteria. The data shows that Narendra Modi is leading Rahul Gandhi against the narrative published by the website, which says “Gandhi is liked more than Prime Minister Narendra Modi” in Madhya Pradesh.

The CSDS-Lokniti survey clear projects Narendra Modi is more liked than Rahul Gandhi.

The Lokniti-CSDS suggests that Prime Minister Modi’s popularity might be slightly lesser than Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan and Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia, but its higher than the likeability of the Congress President Rahul Gandhi.

Interestingly, for the post of Chief Minister, Shivraj Singh Chauhan despite facing anti-incumbency of 15 years rule in the state tops the list of preference for the post of chief minister with 37% compared to 24% for Scindia.

According to CSDS-Lokniti survey, Shivraj Singh Chauhan leads the CM race in Madhya Pradesh

The Wire in its attempt to discredit BJP leadership has yet again resorted to invent new data and publish factually incorrect reports to suit their agenda. The controversial leftist propaganda website has time and again resorted to publishing fake news, defamatory articles against individuals with a different ideological viewpoint. Recently, Anil Ambani-led Reliance group has sued leftist propaganda website The Wire for Rs. 6,000 crore over its coverage of the Rafale deal.
