Will focus on address aspirations in five years: Modi


IANS New Delhi
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said that he spent five years in fulfilling the country's requirements and his next five years will be focused on addressing its aspirations.
Interacting with lakhs of people across more than 500 locations across the country under "Main Bhi Chowkidar" campaign from Talkatora Indoor Stadium here, he urged the youth be vigilant about the opposition's "false promises" and analyse their track record.
He also hinted that if he gets re-elected as the Prime Minister, his government would act tough against corruption.
"In the last five years, I put all my strength to do what was lacking, to fulfil the necessities from toilets, electricity, roads, trains to buses. Now in next five years, our focus would be on to build a strong structure.
"In first five years, the government tried to fulfil the basis requirements and next five years will be to address the ambitions and aspirations of the country," he said to a query about his focus if he returns as the Prime Minister.
The Prime Minister said in last five years, he successfully dragged the people, who looted the country through different means of corruption, to jail and will act as tough if he gets elected.
He also attacked the Congress for its election promise of NYAY and others and urged the voters to be careful about such kind of promises on the eve of elections.
"When elections come, political parties start announcing attractive schemes. But voters should check their track record and should not listen their tap recorder," he said.
He said India's first Prime Minister (Jawaharlal Nehru), his daughter and Prime Minister (Indira Gandhi), and her son and Prime Minister (Rajiv Gandhi) and his widow (Sonia Gandhi), who run the country through remote control, had promised to end poverty and now her son (Rahul Gandhi) was making the same promise.
"This is their track record. The four generations were promising the same issue but despite ending poverty, it increased.
"Therefore, I urge people to minutely examine everything what some parties are saying and promising," he said.
