BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi rose to the top of the TIME 100 chart on Monday after he got more than 5 lakh positive votes in a span of few hours.
Modi, who had got around 50,000 yes votes from Friday to Sunday, got about 5-6 lakh yes votes starting from about 11 am on Monday. By Monday evening, Modi had a total of about 10 lakh votes, with about 55% being positive and remaining negative.
In comparison, Modi had nearly 65% of total votes in the negative over the three days starting from Friday. The situation changed over a few hours on Monday.
It also reversed for Arvind Kejriwal, who was leading the race as of Sunday by a large margin. Over a few hours on Monday, Kejriwal has gone from over 80% positive to less than 50% positive.
Some Aam Aadmi Party supporters have been shocked by the change that happened in just a few hours. They are even petitioning TIME against what they think is rigging.
For now, Modi supporters, who were in dissaray for three days, are celebrating.
