Ahmedabad: Narendra Modi on Wednesday said he was committed to bring back black money stashed abroad and assured people that if BJP is voted to power, he would set up a task force, amend laws and distribute the money brought in as "gift" among honest tax-payers.
"The whole country is worried about black money. It is an anti-national activity. For bringing back this black money, you require a political will. I give an assurance to my countrymen that when we will form a government in Delhi, we will create a task force and if necessary will amend the laws," the BJP's prime ministerial candidate said as he launched the party's much-hyped "Chai pe charcha with NaMo" (a discussion over tea with Modi) campaign.
"We will bring back each and every penny deposited abroad by Indian citizens. I am committed to this because this money belongs to the poor people of India and no one has the right to do this kind of anti-national activity," he said answering a query in this regard.
Modi was interacting with people here as part of "Chai pe charcha with NaMo", where he answered questions from the public from across the country on the theme of good governance.
The programme has been coined by BJP using the 'tea- seller' barb hurled at Modi by rivals to reach out to voters across the country and engage with him.
