PM Modi said this was not the case with his government that was committed to devote every rupee and every resource for the welfare of Indians so that fruits of development reached the beneficiaries without any scope of corruption. PM Modi said cash currency had always been changing from stone coins, rubber coins, gold and silver coins in the economic history of the world and now it was the time for digital currency in the world. "India cannot lag behind."

Without naming Rajiv Gandhi, PM Modi recalled that a former Prime Minister had said that from every rupee sanctioned by the government, only 15 paise reached its beneficiary in a village. "One of the Prime Ministers had said every rupee is reduced to 15 paise when it reaches a village after getting sanctioned from Delhi. Which hand reduces the rupee?" he asked, in a sarcastic reference to the Congress election symbol.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today launched a veiled but scathing attack on the Congress over corruption in development funds, asking which was the "hand" that reduced every rupee to 15 paise before reaching its beneficiary. Addressing a public rally in Ujjire near Dharmasthala, a temple town in Dakshina Kannada, before heading to Bengaluru, PM Modi also took a dig at the opposition for its criticism of demonetisation aimed at making the economy less dependent on cash, saying even parents limit cash given to their children because it spoils them.

PM Modi's Speech In Bengaluru
Here are the highlights of PM Modi's speech in Bengaluru today:

  • Happy to be here in Bengaluru and to see so many of you. Karnataka seems to have made up its mind & supports politics of development.
  • People have no expectations from the Congress party.
  • Why are Congress leaders lending their voice to those who want "Azadi" in Kashmir. This is an insult to our brave soldiers.
  • Congress will have to answer for the recent statement of their leaders on Kashmir. The statement was unacceptable.
  • Yesterday's statement of a Congress leader on Kashmir clearly shows how the party feels on surgical strikes and the bravery of our army.
  • Do you remember the lies Congress was spreading on Doklam. People of India trusted them so much but this is their conduct.
  • The Congress is disconnected with the aspirations of our country.

Prime Minister addressed a rally at Ujire in Karnataka. Here are the highlights of his speech:

  • I am happy that I got the opportunity to pray to Lord Manjunatha.
  • This century is about skill development. A nation like India is youthful and hence, we must harness our demographic dividend.
  • Our saints and seers created as well as nurtured institutions which have helped society for centuries.
  • I got the opportunity to hand over RuPay cards to women self help groups. Happy to see enthusiasm towards digital transactions.
  • Conservation of water is a major challenge for us in this day and age. We also need to give importance towards living in harmony with nature and not think about short term gains.
  • I have seen how hard BS Yeddyurappa works for the welfare of farmers. Even when I was serving as Chief Minister, he would be talking to me about issues relating to farmers.
  • I urge the farmers of Karnataka to embrace methods like drip irrigation that help conserve water.
  • Every rupee, every resource from the Government of India is devoted for the welfare of Indians. We are ensuring the fruits of development reach the intended beneficiaries without any scope of corruption.
  • I urge people to use Bhim App and embrace cashless transactions. This is the era of honesty and integrity. There is no place for those who cheat the system.
