For the 1st time there's no corruption taint on a govt: Modi

January 12, 2019 14:17

Prime Minister Narendra Modi speaking at Bharatiya Janata Party national convention in New Delhi:

"For first time in country's history, there has been no charge of corruption against a government. BJP rule proved that country can see a change and government can run without corruption," Modi said.

"We can take pride in the fact that there is no taint on us," he said.

Emphasising that the goal of his government is Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Modi said that 10 per cent reservation to upper caste poor will boost the confidence of 'New India'. 

"Without tampering with existing reservations, the BJP government has given 10 per cent reservation to the general category," he said.

"The government before us pushed the country into darkness. It won't be wrong if I say that India lost 10 important years (2004-2014) in scams and corruption," he said.
