Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday claimed that his government was moving on the correct path, adding the people have put their seal of approval on it.
Addressing a public rally at the Bali Yatra ground in Cuttack on the fourth anniversary of his government, PM Modi took a jibe at the Congress-led Opposition saying his government’s commitment to fight corruption has sent “shivers down the spines of many who have come on one platform”.
“Three thousand raids were conducted by various agencies and undeclared income to the tune of Rs 73,000 crore was unearthed. Tough rules against black money have sent shivers down the spines of many who have come on one platform”, Modi said in an oblique reference to the opposition parties who are grouping against the NDA.
The prime minister also reminded the audience that at least four former chief ministers were in jail because of his government’s drive against corruption.
“Today, around four former chief ministers are in jail forcing all opposition parties to come under one umbrella,” PM Modi said.
Launching a scathing attack on the Congress party, PM Modi said that one family ruled the country for about 48 years because of the grand old party’s policy of “family first”.
PM Modi also pointed out that the BJP is in power in 20 states of the country reflecting people’s endorsement for NDA’s performance in the last four years.
On the four year-rule of the NDA government, he said people now believe that the country can change.
The country is moving towards “susashan” (good governance) from “kusashan” (bad governance) and towards “jandhan” (public money) from “kaladhan” (black money).
“The people can now see that the NDA government is working with the motto ‘sabka sath, sabka vikash’,” he said.
Noting that the NDA government is not afraid of taking tough decisions, Modi said that it is not a government of confusion.
“It is a government of commitment and it has the strength to go for surgical strike”, he said.
Attacking the Congress, he said, “It has always bothered about power.”
The prime minister also said that after four years of NDA regime, India is now changing from 'kala dhan' to 'Jan Dhan', from bad governance to good governance.
“In these four years, 125 crore Indians have come to believe that our India can change. Today the nation is changing from 'kala dhan' to 'Jan Dhan', from bad governance to good governance,” PM Modi said.
Earlier in the day, the prime minister launched a survey on his app, asking people to rate the performance of the BJP-led dispensation at the Centre and MPs and MLAs in their constituencies.
“It is your voice that counts! Tell me what you feel about the working of the central government, its initiatives and the development work in your constituency. Take part in this survey on the NaMo app,” Modi tweeted.
According to PTI, the survey has also asked the people to list three most-popular BJP leaders in their states and constituencies, and rate them on the basis of availability, honesty, humility and popularity.
