    India's GenY hates Sharad Pawar the most: India Today opinion poll.
    Mail Today Bureau New Delhi, December 3, 2011 | UPDATED 10:08 IST

    The verdict is out. Young India hates Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar the most while Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh are next in line.

    BJP veteran L.K. Advani occupies the fourth place on the 'national hate meter' of the youth and his party president Nitin Gadkari is ranked fifth.

    CPM general secretary Prakash Karat occupies the sixth slot followed by DMK chief M. Karunanidhi and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa, respectively.

    Home Minister P. Chidambaram is hated just marginally more than Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, who is followed by Congress president Sonia Gandhi at 11th position with Petroleum Minister S. Jaipal Reddy​ next in line.

    An India Today opinion poll, conducted after Delhi youth, Harvinder Singh, slapped Pawar on November 24, shows that the agriculture minister is hated the most because he has "allowed foodgrain to rot and people to starve".

    The survey, to be published in the news magazine's December 12 issue, points out that NCP leader's jet-set lifestyle - "he takes off to South Africa on a private jet to win an international cricket election" - adds to the youth's anger.

    The opinion poll was conducted among 2,500 respondents (between the age group of 18-25 years) in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai and Bangalore.

    Interestingly, it has found that Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi​ is more hated (at 14th position) than Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati, who is placed next, followed by Heavy Industries Minister Praful Patel and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

    Leading Team Anna baiters from the Congress - Kapil Sibal (18th), Manish Tewari (20th) and Digvijaya Singh (25th) -also figure on the hate list. So do RJD president Lalu Prasad​ (13th), Samajwadi Party​ chief Mulayam Singh Yadav​ (26th) and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar (31st).

    The Union ministers who figure in the list include Salman Khurshid (22nd), Pranab Mukherjee​ (23rd), Kamal Nath (24th), A.K. Antony (27th), Jairam Ramesh (28th), Anand Sharma (29th), Ambika Soni (30th) and Vayalar Ravi (32nd).

    "Only those politicians who refuse to invest in the future of India will dare to underestimate the power of this angry generation. India is growing younger as a country," the poll says.

    "They (the youth) were in the vanguard of the Anna Hazare​ movement, which made them not only active stakeholders in Indian democracy, but also made them aware of the status of morality in politics," it adds

    The Opinion survey is not at all representative, 2000 people from 5 metros is not enough to as a sample size to get opinions. There should be atleast 50,000+ and atleast 15-20 metros covered.

    If Gen X feels so, it proves how shallow they are.

    Sharad Pawar is not a One Man Cabinet or a One Man Government.

    Therefore, Gen X or Y has no idea of how the Govt functions!

    They deserve pity!

    small mind, big mouth!

    Manmohan Singh is but the front of superior and powerful figures.

    He is merely warming the seat for someone else, who still has not matured, if one goes by his stupid comments and gross stupidity!

    Advani has only seniority as a politician but does not have the charisma to lead! Yatras are all he can do!

    India wants leaders and there are none on the scene!

    Digvijay is merely a Court Jester and a prized punk! His mouth is a runaway bride!

    That itself should be alarm bells for him. With close to zero political experience, he's ranking that high up the list (above even Mayawati).

    This list is rubbish.

    The media has no nuts to actually name the truly hated Gandhi parivar.

    My hate list:

    - Sonia G
    - Rahul G
    - Munni-mohan not-at-all-Singh
    - Pigvijay Singh
    - Sharad Pawar
    - Entire Communist Party of India
    - Tarun Gogoi
    - AK Anthony
    - P Chidambaram
    - Pratibha Patil

    All these should rot and Edit.
