New Delhi: Addressing the two-day National Executive meet of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in New Delhi on Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the government is dedicated to improving the quality of the life of poor people and the move to demonetise higher value currency was a part of the long-term measures, in order to curb black money. “Our commitment is to change the quality of life of poor. Demonetisation part of long-term measures against corruption, black money,” he said.

He further stated on the social evil of corruption and how it was an obstacle to the development of the country.

“Corruption a big social evil and unregulated flow of currency a big stumbling block in containing graft,” he said. PM Modi also urged the party members to use their ‘organisational strength’ to win the poor over as that was true service to God. “Serving people amounts to serving God,” he said.

Stressing on bringing transparency in political funding, PM Modi said BJP fully backs the idea of transparency in political funding. He also added, “For us poor and poverty not just about winning polls it’s an opportunity to serve.”

Earlier on Friday, BJP President Amit Shah also hailed the PM Modi for India’s stance after the Uri attack. Shah said, “Because of the leadership and will power of the Prime Minister, for the first time in independent India, we gave a fitting reply by entering the enemy’s own home… this one decision changed the way the world looks at India.”

He also posted the advantages of the demonetisation move and said that it would help the nation get rid of corruption and black money. The national executive meet also described BJP’s successes in 2016, including the election win in Assam and the formation of government in Arunachal Pradesh.

The national executive also lauded the armed forces and came down heavily on Pakistan.

At the National Executive meet,  a resolution was also adopted by the BJP that states:

“Terrorism is today seen by the democratic and civilised world as a scourge whereas Pakistan continues to use it as state policy. It continues to push terrorists into India and other countries and engages in terror attacks and promotes violent insurgent and the separatist movement in Jammu and Kashmir.”

The surgical strikes ordered by the Prime Minister and total rejection of the separatist agenda by the people and governments of Jammu and Kashmir and the Centre are a categorical assertion to Pakistan that its ulterior designs shall never succeed and the government led by PM Modi will continue to demonstrate zero tolerance for terrorism; and it reserves every right to respond to such threats in an appropriate and out-of-the-box manner in future also.”
