Andhra Pradesh, West Bengal and Chhattisgarh have blocked entry of CBI. What wrong have they done that they're feeling scared? Today they don't accept CBI, tomorrow they won't accept some other institution. Army, Police, SC, EC, CAG all are wrong, only they are right: Modi

Last four years have told us, nothing is impossible, says Modi

PM Narendra Modi: In 2007, a Congress minister said Modi will go to jail within a few months. They sent Amit Shah to the jail. But we didn't form a law to stop CBI from entering Gujarat as we had faith in law. These people are levelling allegations on agencies because they're scared.
