Tuem, Goa, November 13: Making pitch for his most recent surgical strike on fake currency which is now a top-most discussed event in the Nation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked people whether they will remain with him in the battle of uprooting all kind of corruption and corrupt economic practices from India.
Reiterating that he will go back till 1947 to dig out black money and punish the culprits who hold Indian Economy for hostage for all those years, Modi said that he knew with what he is dealing with and knows the forces up against him. “They may not let me live, they may ruin me because their loot of 70 years is in trouble, but am prepared”, said Modi expressing his firm stand and conviction.
“You have chosen a government and they expect so much from it. In 2014 so many people voted to free the nation from corruption”, Modi remembered the people that they had voted him. He further said: “I was not born to sit on a chair of high office. Whatever I had, my family, my home...I left it for the nation”.
Showing his emotional side, Modi mentioned what kind of pains the people of India are facing in the transition period to wipe out fake currency and black money. He said that he also feels the pain, but expressed that these steps taken were not a display of arrogance.
The Prime Minister was at Goa after the recent Japan visit to lay the foundation stone of a green-field airport at the Mopa plateau and an electronic city in Tuem - both located Northern Goa. PM Modi also congratulated the organizing team which successfully hosted the BRICS Summit in Goa a few weeks back.
Regarding the inauguration of key projects, PM said that as far as the airport is concerned, I am happy that we are fulfilling the promise made by Atal Bihari Vajpayee. This will benefit Goa. With the new airport the impetus to tourism will be immense, he said.
Taking about the political history of Goa, PM lauded Manohar Parrikar’s efforts for making Goa politically powerful. “Political instability had affected Goa's growth. And due to this instability, the state never realised its true potential. I laud Manohar Parrikar for ushering in a political culture in Goa- that of taking Goa to new heights of progress.” said Modi.
“Due to Parrikar, Goa saw political stability and formation of a Government that works for the welfare of the state. A digitally trained, modern and youth driven Goa is being shaped today. This has the power to transform India”, PM further said.
