As India inches closer towards general elections, BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi has emerged as the most searched chief minister on search giant Google.

According to Google Trends, the Gujarat chief minister topped the tally, followed by Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalithaa Jayaram, Uttar Pradesh CM Akhilesh Yadav, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee and Bihar CM Nitish Kumar.

Other most searched CMs of India included Shivraj Singh Chouhan (Madhya Pradesh), Vasundhara Raje (Rajasthan), Tarun Gogoi (Assam), Omar Abdullah (J&K) and Oommen Chandy (Kerala), Google said in a statement.

The trends are for a time period of three months - from December 14 to March 13. "As we move closer towards the 2014 Elections for the 16th Lok Sabha, there is a lot focus on the chief ministers of different states and focus on the role that they will play to ensure how their respective parties fare in these elections.

Google Search Trends decided to look at how the CMs are stacking up in terms of visibility online," it added.

Within Congress, the top five most searched CMs were Tarun Gogoi, Oommen Chandy, Bhupinder Singh Hooda (Haryana), Virbhadra Singh (Himanchal Pradesh) and Harish Rawat (Uttranchal).

For BJP, the top five most searched CMs were Narendra Modi, Vasundhara Raje, Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Manohar Parrikar (Goa) and Raman Singh (Chhattisgarh).
