On the promise of “Na Khaunga, na Khane Doonga” (will not take bribes, nor allow anyone else to do so), Prime Minister Narendra Modi led his party to a landslide win in the 2014 general elections.

Irrespective of how successful the measures have been, what is the perception of the common man about corruption under the new government?
