While the official list of the 100 most influential people in the world will be announced later this week, Time editors had asked readers to cast their vote online for people from politics, entertainment, business, technology, science, religion and other fields who "changed the world this past year, for better or worse."
PM Modi, however, garnered just 0.6 per cent of the votes cast, with only 34 per cent of the people voting in his favour and 66 per cent against.
Time said the "populist" leader, who swept to power last year on a pledge to boost India's economic punch, has rolled out key economic reforms and restored close ties with the U.S., hosting U.S. President Barack Obama in January after a "rock star" visit to the U.S. last year. Mr Kejriwal got 0.5 per cent, with 71 per cent voters saying he should not be in the list. On Mr Kejriwal, Time said after a brief stint as chief minister of Delhi in 2013, he led his anti-establishment Aam Aadmi Party in a "rout of both leading national parties in Delhi assembly election."
