In his address to the BJP’s national executive meet in Delhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi re-emphasised that his battle against corruption was uncompromised.

My “battle against it is uncompromising. No one will be spared,” said the Prime Minister.

The prime minister also took a dig at opposition parties, saying that the Opposition’s use of harsh language cannot be a substitute for substantive charges against the government.

PM Modi also asked the gathering take the BJP beyond elections and make it an instrument of mass participation to improve quality of people’s lives.

The BJP, he said, has become central to people’s hopes and ambitions as he asked party’s leaders to become a link between people’s problems and government.

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.

“When opposition was in government, power was a means of enjoyment for it. Now they do not know how to behave as opposition,” Modi told the meeting, according to Jaitley.

Opposition parties have been attacking the Modi government over demonetisation and cited the recent RBI figures to corner it.
