A CNN-IBN Urban India Ooinion Poll shows the recent economic reform move of the government has not gone down well with the urban India. The poll shows that while the price rise and corruption remain the major concerns for the urban India, there is also a massive anger over cap on LPG subsidy and diesel price hike among the people across the cities.

The findings also suggest a lack of support for FDI in multi-brand retail.

The poll was conducted in six cities immediately after the Trinamool Congress' withdrawal of support to the UPA government. The 1,236 respondents were from Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Ahmedabad and Lucknow.

Major findings of the survey:
