Press Trust of India  |  Hubbali (Karna) 

Prime Sunday said the honest trusted him and the corrupt had a problem as he ensured the benefits meant for the poor reached them directly.

said those who had worked as middlemen in areas, including deals concerning national security for illegal gratification were facing the music now.

"This Pradhan sevak (himself), this chowkidar (ensures) that the benefits meant for poor are going directly to their accounts. That is why the honest have trust on while the corrupt have a problem," he said at a public rally here.

In an apparent reference to and former Union P Chiadmbaram's son appearing before probe agencies like the ED, he indicated this could have hardly happened earlier.

"You are seeing in what is happening.. those whose incomes people dared to talk about earlier, are now appearing before courts (and) agencies," he said.
