ABSTRACT

Ever since the transformative and charismatic leader has come into power in May 2014, the road to political leadership has changed many folds. The country has seen its own set of ups and downs. Somewhere and somehow be it the matter of following a nationalistic approach towards appeasement, or be it being vocal, the present prime minister has been, India has seen its own set of upward growth and recognition worldwide. The aim of the present research is to examine and explore how the political attitudes have fared in the past seven years amongst the youth through a qualitative analysis. For the present study, 30 individuals both males and females aged between 22-28 were contacted. A self-designed political attitude questionnaire which was subjective in nature was administered using telephonic interview and online form, keeping in mind the ongoing pandemic. Transcripts were formulated into codes and themes were analysed on the basis of the same. This research paper is an attempt to explore how political attitudes are important when we have a democratic structure and when there are various opinions, differences, conflicts and ideologies in a country that votes and chooses one among a multi-party system.
