Electoral bond data a setback for the BJP? What PM Modi said

There may be shortcomings that can be improved, Prime Minister Modi said on the electoral bond programme.

New Delhi:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday rejected suggestions that the electoral bonds issue caused a setback for his government. He said no system is perfect and any shortcomings can be improved.

He also said that those who ‘dance’ on the issue will repent of it.

“Tell me what we have done that I should see it as a setback? I am confident that those who dance about it (bond details) and are proud of it will convert,” he told Thanthi TV in an interview when told asked whether the details on electoral bonds have caused a setback for the ruling BJP.

The Prime Minister said it is thanks to his government’s electoral system that the sources of funding and its beneficiaries can be traced.

If there is a trail available today, it is through the presence of bonds, he said, wondering if any agency could tell us anything about the sources of funding and their beneficiaries for the polls before 2014, the year he power came.

“No system is perfect. There may be shortcomings that can be improved,” he said.

Opposition parties have cited the revelations that followed the Supreme Court order, which brought all information related to electoral bonds into the public domain, while calling the anonymous financing practice unconstitutional, to attack the government.

Many companies facing criminal investigations have emerged as major buyers of these bonds.

In the interview, Prime Minister Modi claimed that one should not see politics in everything he does. He said he works for the country and Tamil Nadu is its great strength.

If votes had been his main concern, he would not have done so much for the northeastern states, the prime minister said, noting that his ministers have visited the region more than 150 times and that he himself has gone there more than once than all other prime ministers. have ministers together.

“The fact that I am a politician does not mean that I only work to win elections. Tamil Nadu has immense potential that should not be wasted,” he said.

The BJP-led National Democratic Alliance connects different sections of society and represents people’s aspirations, he said, adding that the votes it will receive in Tamil Nadu will not be anti-DMK but pro-BJP.

He said, “People have witnessed the work we have done in the last decade. Tamil Nadu has decided that this time it will be the BJP-NDA.” The BJP was working for Tamil Nadu even though it did not have a single municipal candidate there, he said.

Prime Minister Modi also praised Tamil Nadu BJP president K Annamalai and said he is attracting the youth. They think that if money and corruption were his motivations, he could have joined the DMK, the Prime Minister said.

“Viksit Bharat means providing development assistance to every corner of the country. I believe Tamil Nadu has the potential to become the driving force behind our dream of a Viksit Bharat,” he said.

Prime Minister Modi lamented the politicization of the Tamil language, a swipe at opposition parties that have often accused the BJP of undermining regional languages, and said as the state’s cuisine has been globalized, the dialect should be promoted in the same way.

“The politicization of the Tamil language has not only been detrimental to Tamil Nadu but also to the entire country,” he said.
