“This is not an end. I have more projects in mind to make India corruption-free. …. Cooperate with me and help me for 50 days and I will give you the India you desired,” Modi said after laying the foundation stone of Mopa greenfield airport and launching work on electronic city project in Goa.

“We will take action against ‘benami’ property; This is major step to eradicate corruption and black money … If any money that was looted in India and has left Indian shores, it is our duty to find out about it,” he said. “I know that (some) forces are up against me, they may not let me live, they may ruin me because their loot of 70 years is in trouble, but I am prepared,” Modi said in a speech which saw him getting emotional a few times. He said the people voted against corruption in 2014. “I am doing what I was asked to do by the people of this country and it had become clear from the very first meeting of my Cabinet when I formed the SIT (on blackmoney). We never kept the people in dark.”

Hitting out at previous governments, the Prime Minister said they “neglected this …we took a key step to help honest citizen to defeat the menace of graft.”
