What would anyone be going through when searching for ” Oxygen Cylinder near me “.  This made me remember the difficult part of the year India had (Oxygen Cylinder near me ).This was when I was looking at Google’s Year in Search 2021 and I found these top items:

The latest opinion polls, including the Mood of the Nation survey by India Today, predict a comfortable victory for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s BJP and its allies in the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), with a projected win of 335 Lok Sabha seats in the 2024 general elections.

The survey, involving interviews with over 149,000 respondents, reflects Modi’s enduring popularity based on his nationalist policies and economic reforms.
