New Delhi: Under Opposition’s attack over demonetisation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Monday power was a means of enjoyment for them when they were in government, asserting that his battle against graft was “uncompromising” and no one will be spared.
Addressing the BJP’s national executive and its law-makers from across the country, Mr Modi asked them to take the party beyond elections and make it an instrument of mass participation to improve quality of people’s lives.
Mr Modi’s comments at the closed-door meeting, attended by 13 Chief Ministers, six deputy chief ministers, over 60 Union ministers besides party’s MPs and MLAs among others, were shared with the media by senior party leader Arun Jaitley.
Mr Modi also underlined his resolve to fight corruption, saying his “battle against it is uncompromising. No one will be spared. I have no relatives”. Taking a dig at Opposition parties, he said their use of harsh language cannot be a substitute for substantive charges against the government. Opposition parties have been attacking the Modi government over demonetisation.
