Ready to pay political price for steps taken for better India: Modi

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday said that he was ready for the big political price he will have to pay for the steps he has taken for the betterment of the country, in a reference to decisions taken to curb black money, reports PTI. He also said that his government is committed to developing a development-centric eco system which is free of corruption and is citizen centric. Addressing a gathering here, he said that post demonetisation, black money, which was part of a parallel economy, has now become part of the formal system.

Inaugurating the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit here, Modi said data mining after the note ban is also helping government track down those involved in corruption.

Appreciating the role of Aadhaar in delivering services to the people and also checking pilferages, he said the system would also work as a tool to track down benami properties.

"The day the country will have a technical and digital address for all monetary transactions, organised corruption would be checked to a great extent.

"I am aware of the big political price I will have to pay for the steps I have taken, the path I have chosen and the destination I want to take the country to. But I am ready for it," the Prime Minister said.

Modi also used the opportunity to hit out at the previous Congress-led UPA government, saying that when the NDA took over in 2014, the "legacy" it got was in the form of a poor fiscal order, banking system, economy and governance.

In an apparent dig at the media, he said the situation then was not described "harshly".
