New Delhi: Prime Minster Narendra Modi on Monday bagged the online reader’s poll for TIME magazine’s Person of the Year.
The poll had contenders like US President-elect Donald Trump, the outgoing US leader Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, FBI Chief James Comey, Apple CEO Tim Cook, parents of slain Muslim-American soldier Humanyun Khan, Khizr and Ghazala Khan, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, British Prime Minister Theresa May and Chinese leader Xi Jinping.
Prime Minister Modi had won the readers’ poll of Time’s Person of the Year in 2014 as well.
The Prime Minister was among the contenders for the annual honour even in 2015, but could not make it to the final eight.
Last year, German Chancellor Angela Merkel was Time’s ‘Person of the Year’.
