This is fight to end corruption and dishonesty: PM


Ghazipur : Slamming opposition parties on opposing demonetisation ,Prime Minister Narendra Modi said here today that he started a fight against corruption, black money, fake note business and he knew that his rivals will not spare him but he will not leave the path of truth and integrity. The Prime Minister started his speech by lauding Ghazipur’s role in freedom fighting. He said “I am fortunate that I am in Ghazipur for the second time in two years.' About inconvenience of public after demonetising of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes, Mr. Modi said “The poor are sleeping peacefully while rich are running around in search of sleeping pills.” Recalling his development projects recently started in Eastern UP Mr. Modi said “You voted me and I had promised that I will bring development in UP. Now I am doing whatever I promised.” He said he started long pending project Gorakhpur fertiliser plant for the development of the Eastern UP. Mr Modi said that he chose November 14, first Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru’s birthday purposely as he wanted to give special tribute to Pandit ji on his birth anniversary by starting development projects recommended by Patel’s committee years ago. The PM said he was committed to restore the glory of the region and strengthen farmers again. Admitting that he knew that public was facing inconvenience, Mr. Modi said “I did right thing by scrapping high denomination notes as it was necessary to curb increasing corruption.” 'It might take time and cause some hardships. It is a big task to introduce new notes. I have sought 50 days and all these processes will be completed by December 30. Bank staffers are working day and night to help us. Realise this. I have asked you to bear the little discomfort for 50 days for the interest of the poor' he said. Taking a dig on Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati, Mr. Modi said “Some parties are worried. From where the garlands of notes came? Is it not the money of poor?” Criticising the Congress party’s reactions, Mr Modi said 'The Congress is worried about people. They enforced Emergency and converted this nation into a jail. They restrained newspapers and arrested people, who spoke up.
