New Delhi, September 26: Saying that his stand against corruption is uncompromising, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated that he has no relatives who'll benefit from his indulgence in corruption. PM Modi made these comments during the BJP National Executive meet in national capital on Monday evening.

Addressing the valedictory session of the BJP National Executive meeting, the Prime Minister has asserted that his fight against corruption is uncompromising. He said democracy must be seen as beyond elections as winning elections is not the only goal of his party.

 

He asked party workers to take BJP beyond elections. Union Minister and senior party leader Arun Jaitley told reporters that Modi asked party workers to be a part of government's welfare schemes to make them successful as no scheme can become successful without people's participation.

Taking on the opposition, the Prime Minister said harsh language by political adversaries cannot be a substitute to any substantial charge against the government. He alleged that when opposition was in power, it used the power only for personal gains and not for public good.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who outlined PM Modi's speech, said that BJP will organise run for unity on 31st of October across the country on the birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.

Earlier in the day, the BJP National Executive passed a political resolution lauding the Prime Minister's role in successfully exposing Pakistan on terrorism before the international community. Giving details of the political resolution, Union Minister and senior BJP leader Nitin Gadkari said, the Prime Minister has become successful in keeping the scourge of terrorism as an International agenda.
