A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi warned of more stringent measures against blackmoney towards end of December,  Modi on Sunday said his government will carry forward the fight against all the Benami property holders in the country. While addressing an event in Belgaum, the prime minister said his government doesn’t want to trouble “honest” people. Saying that he took the step to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes only after taking the entire country into confidence, PM Modi said he needs time till December 30 to overcome the initial hardships faced by the people.

Earlier, addressing an event in Goa, PM Modi said “Jiske paas bhi benaami sampatti hai hum us par hamla bolne waale hain (We are going to attack all having black money),” he said.

Talking about his decision to demonetise the currency notes on Rs 500 and Rs 1000 denominations, the PM said that it is an important step towards making the society corruption-free. “This is important step towards eradicating corruption and black money, but some people are lost in their own world,” he said. Modi was in Goa to lay the foundation stone for Greenfield Airport at Mopa plateau.

Highlights of his speech:
