Panaji: Prime Minister Narendra Modi moved a section of the nation today and attracted jeers from others as he said about his attempts to fight corruption, “I know the forces up against me, they may not let me live… they may ruin me because their loot of 70 years is in trouble, but am prepared.”

This was his first public speech since the scrapping of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes, a decision made to hit hoarders of hard.

He said he was not arrogant. “I have seen poverty and understand people’s problems.”

“I was not born to on a chair of high office. Whatever I had, my family, my home…I left it for the nation,” the prime minister asserted.

The ban on high denomination currency, the Prime Minister underscored today, was a move to counter black money.

“People voted me in to fight corruption. Shouldn’t I do it?” he questioned. “We took a key step to help the honest citizen of India defeat the menace of black money. If any money that was looted in India and has left Indian shores, it is our to find out about it.”

Referring to the recent decision of the Union Government on demonetization, the Prime Minister said that on 8th November many people of India slept peacefully, while a few are sleepless even now. He said the Union Government has taken a key step to help the honest citizens of India, in defeating the menace of black money. The Prime Minister thanked all those who have been contributing to ensuring the success of the demonetization exercise. He said he also feels the pain, and these steps taken were not a display of arrogance. He said that he has seen poverty, and understands people’s problems.

He recalled that in 2014, people had voted to free the nation from corruption. He also mentioned the various steps that have been taken by the Union Government to curb black money.

The Prime Minister said that if any money has been looted in India and has left Indian shores, it is our to find out about it. He said that he was not born to on a chair of high office, adding that whatever he had, including his family, and his home, he had left to serve the nation.
