My battle against corruption is uncompromising: Indian PM Modi

09/25/2017

NEW DELHI, Sept. 25: Vowing to end corruption, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday told the BJP national executive meeting in the national capital that his battle against corruption is “uncompromising” and no one will be spared. Addressing a press conference after the BJP meet, Finance Minister Arun Jaitleyquoted Modi as saying, “My battle against corruption is uncompromising and no one will be spared; I have no relatives.” Modi also asked the party lawmakers to think beyond just elections and make it an instrument of mass participation to improve quality of people’s lives, asserting that no other political party in the country is as active as the BJP, said Jaitley.

The closed-door meeting was attended by 13 chief ministers, six deputy chief ministers, over 60 union ministers besides party’s MPs and MLAs among others.

Elaborating on Modi’s statements at the national executive meeting, Jaitley said that prime minister Modi hit out at the Opposition for indulging in harsh language without substance. “Opposition sometimes uses harsh language but makes no substantive charge,’ Jaitley quoted Modi as saying. Opposition parties have been attacking the Modi government over demonetisation and cited the recent RBI figures to corner it.

He also added that for the previous governments, power meant enjoyment. “Power was means of enjoyment for the opposition when it was in government,” said Jaitley adding that UPA didn’t take a single step against black money and corruption. “Obviously they will be uneasy over our measures against it (corruption),” said the minister.TIE
