“It is not right in God’s sight to obey men rather than God.”

I will fulfil expectations of people, says Narendra Modi

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said he will fulfil all expectations of the people of India. “After completing 60 days in office I am confident that we will be able to fulfil people’s expectations,” Modi said at the Bharatiya Janata Party’s national council meet, the first after the general elections, at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here.

In his address, Modi repeatedly mentioned the impressive show by the BJP in the Lok Sabha polls in which it got a majority. “In the run up to the polls, I often said at rallies that I wanted 300 seats and many of my colleagues advised me to not mention any numerical figure. But the people of the country were in a mood to give,” he said.

“The people have discharged their duty brilliantly and now it is our turn to perform,” he said. Modi said the world’s attitude towards India had changed after formation of a strong government in New Delhi.

“Maybe, they were used to coalition governments. But now they know that this government has got a clear mandate,” he added. Lauding his government for bringing about a dramatic change in functioning within 60 days, the PM said many of the promises made in the manifesto of the party before the elections were included in the budget and a roadmap had been prepared for the same.

Modi further said the party could carve a separate identity for itself by encouraging its workers to work for a social cause each year. “Every party worker should work on programmes on the social issue for a particular year,” he said.

In a veiled attack on Congress and SP, Prime Minister Narendra Modi accused them of continuing to practice vote-bank politics to divide society and asserted that disturbance of peace and harmony will not be tolerated.

“BJP never accepts incidents of violence which are taking place in the country. Peace, unity and harmony are the pre-requisites for progress and there will be no compromise on this. Those who have suffered a massive defeat in the elections are still not able to desist from engaging in old vote-bank politics. They are engaged in disturbing the social fabric,” Modi said addressing the BJP's National Council meeting.

His attack on rivals without naming them comes against the backdrop of BJP being accused of fanning communal violence in Uttar Pradesh. Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, who stormed the Well of the Lok Sabha to demand debate on rising communal violence, has said the violence in UP was ‘artificially and deliberately engineered’.
