He said he feels the pain of the common man affected by demonetisation, but it was an important step towards eradicating corruption and black money. He even added that he has “more projects” in mind to rid the country of corruption.

“If I commit any mistake, I am ready to face any punishment the country will give me. But I promise to deliver a corruption-free India,” PM Modi said.

 

PM Modi broke down during his speech and said that he had left his family and home to serve the country. “I was not born to sit on a chair of high office. Whatever I had, my family, my home-I left it for nation,” PM Modi said.

“I know what kind of powers I have taken on. I know the kind of people who will be against me now. I am looting what they had accumulated over 70 years,” Modi said in his speech.

“They will not leave me alive. They will destroy me. Let them do what they want. Fifty days help me. The country should just help me for 50 days,” Modi added.

He said that many people in India slept peacefully on November 8, when the announcement was made, but “some are sleepless even now”.

Addressing an event in Goa, he said that it was everyone’s duty to report about money that was “looted” in India and sent abroad.

“This is not the end. This is not a full stop. I am openly saying, this is not a full stop,” he pointed out.

His speech comes at a time when anger intensified in the country over the weekend as banks struggled to dispense cash following the government’s decision to withdraw large denomination notes.
