Ahmedabad: Blaming Congress for criminalising politics, Narendra Modi today said that if voted to power he will set up special courts to try the tainted MPs and MLAs and send the guilty behind bars within one year.
He also said that he would free the system from criminals within five years.
"I am disturbed by the criminalisation of politics, for which, Congress is responsible. Congress leaders started using criminals to retain power by hook or crook. Later, these criminals became powerful and turned politicians. We must free our political system from such criminals," Modi said.
Modi was giving a speech in Gandhinagar today that was broadcast live across 100 locations in 15 states with the use of 3D holographic technology.
"Just give me one chance to clean the system. I will set up special courts under the supervision of the Supreme Court to try all the tainted MPs and MLAs, that too within one year time limit. After one year, those who are guilty, will go to jail," he said.
