Trends – Breaking “Mahagathbandhan” with RJD – Making Alliance with BJP
The most popular leader of the Bihar has hit the list because of clean image and to make it forever he parted his way from Lalu Prasad Yadav when he found the allegations of corruption charges against Tejashwi Yadav, the deputy Chief Minister, Nitish asked Yadav to resign from the cabinet which was refused by RJD.

4. Akhilesh Yadav – Former Chief Minister of UP – Fourth best politician of India in 2017
Trends – SP Internal Dispute – Leading UP Elections
The year started with a dispute between Samajwadi party and Akhilesh at the time was a hero of the political game. He became a winner because he was making his image as the one who is in the pathway of development in UP. As such, Mulayam Singh suspended Akhilesh and Ram Gopal Yadav from the party for six years. But fanfare of Akhilesh in UP and support from candidates let Mulayam take back his decision. Akhilesh grabbed this pathway and presented all his conditions for re-joining the party. Akhilesh rejoined SP but with more power over the party now. Another important event that made Akhilesh Yadav in trend was 2017 UP elections, To counter BJP’s fully blown power, Rahul Gandhi – Akhilesh Yadav made a congress – SP alliance. It was another eye-opener. It is the different story that the alliance lost the elections by a big margin. Contradicting to this, UP people still adore Akhilesh Yadav.
3. Rahul Gandhi – President of Indian National Congress – Third Best Politician of India in 2017

In this survey, almost 20% of people are looking forward to seeing “Rahul Gandhi” as a future Prime Minister.
2. Yogi Adityanath – CM of Uttar Pradesh – 2nd best politician of India in 2017
Trends – Victory in UP Elections – Workstyle trended after becoming Chief Minister of UP
A Science student from Uttarakhand who traveled to Gorakhpur in a search to get enlightenment soon got attracted to take an active part in politics. He became a member of parliament for consecutive five terms. Now after getting a confined victory, BJP had chosen him for UP CM post. Then, there was no look back. He was already a “Hindutva Firebrand”. Seeing his working style, even media houses remain stunned as he was a spontaneous and quick decision maker. For almost two months, He even surpassed Narendra Modi in Google searches and social media trends. Seeing his present Impact on Pan India, also if his working style remained same and will be able to maintain his corruption-free image then It will not be a surprise to see him contesting elections as a candidate for the Prime minister of India for long terms.
1. Narendra Modi – The Prime Minister – The best politician of India in 2017
Trends – Demonetization – GST – Doklam’s Domination – Trump Alliance
Post-Independence, India has not witnessed any prime minister who is as dynamic as the Narendra Modi. He is the one who never cares about his image while implementing any amendments or any change that may create disturbance in comfort zone. He has an art to reconcile any mass in his favor. Be it demonetization or implementation of GST, he never took a chance stepping back. No matter how much criticism he has been facing from opposition or media, his wave still remains. It was his image only that BJP won the UP elections by a huge margin. In international affairs too, Modi was determined as such China had to step back on Doklam. His alliance with the US became a highlight of his success in International affairs. Modi is now standing strong as an intelligent Elephant and fighting hard as invincible Lion.
Note – We as Indian expect only one thing from politicians i.e. “Good Work”. Governments are coming and going but a true leader’s job is to lead a nation in one thread so that he or she or other can live for the people, by the people and of the people only then our One nation theory will work.
