Indians are obviously very elated and proud with the news of Modi holding the position of second in the list of 30 top leaders across the world. As per the Japanese research, Modi is only behind the Chinese President XI-Jinping. The Japanese market research firm has revealed their findings after an assessment of various factors, the majority of which are personal image, leadership quality, ability to motivate and integrity of thirty top performing leaders in the world. German Chancellor Angela Merkel was chosen in the position of third. One of the major criteria, apart from the above, say the confidence level of citizens in their leaders, helped Merkel in the third position. Modi not only ranks no. 2, but also he surpasses the world top leaders, namely Obama and UK Prime Minister David Cameron. These leaders belong to the world’s developing nations and quite ahead in most of the sectors, namely technology, finance, health and social as compared to India. Despite their big advantages, they could not defeat Modi in the ranking.
