Mehul Choksi!

Yes, you heard that right, but we are not talking about the fugitive businessman wanted in India in loan default cases. This Choksi is a mere namesake of the diamantaire.

Student Choksi, who had a master degree in political science, took up higher studies at the Veer Narmad South Gujarat University. His thesis was named: "Leadership under Government - Case Study of Narendra Modi”. He completed his PhD under the guidance of Nilesh Joshi of Arts Department, Veer Narmad South Gujarat University.

Choksi told ANI that he formulated a survey and interviewed 450 people for his thesis. He asked questions regarding the leadership quality of Prime Minister Modi to farmers, students and political leaders and government officials.

"The questionnaire had a total of 32 questions. After tabulating the answers given by 450 people it was found that 25% believed that Modi's speeches are most appealing while 48% were of the view that Modi's political marketing is the best,” Choksi added. 

His supervisor Joshi, according to ANI, also said,"We found the topic of the case study very interesting. We faced some challenges as it is difficult to write about the person who holds a higher position and that too without any biases.”
