After claiming that the poor in the country are supporting his demonetisation decision and "enjoying a sound sleep", Prime Minister Narendra Modi has now decided to launch a survey to put his claims to test.

On Tuesday, the Prime Minister urged citizens to vote on the demonetisation policy through the Narendra Modi app on their mobile phones. In the survey, that has been put up on the app, there are 10 questions with regard to scrapping of old Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes.

To take part in the survey, one needs to first download the app and register.

The survey consists of questions with some yes or no answers, some detailed answers and some interactive answers.

For the first two questions, "Do you think that black money exists in India?"' and "Do you think the evil of corruption and black money needs to be fought and eliminated?" you need to answer with 'Yes/No'.

The multiple choice questions include--"Do you think demonetisation will help in curbing black money, corruption and terrorism?" and "Demonetisation will bring real estate, higher education, healthcare in common man's reach?"

There are also questions that ask the user to rate the government.

The survey also has a question asking people if they minded the inconvenience faced due to the demonetisation move, or in the government's words, in their "fight to curb corruption, black money, terrorism and counterfeiting of currency."

The survey has a question that seems like an apparent attack on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. "Do you believe some anti-corruption activists are now actually fighting in support of black money, corruption and terrorism?" reads one of the question listed.

This comes two days after Modi announced that the country will "shine like gold" after the 50-day deadline set by him on demonetisation.

"Aapki tapasya bekar nahin jayegi. Desh sone ki tarah tap ke bahar niklega (Your hardship won't go waste. The country will emerge from this like gold)," said Modi.

He had also said that he was grateful to those people who supported him. "The whole country is with me to rid the country of black money," he had announced.
