UPA’s intentions were not right, alleges Narendra Modi


Bengaluru: Accusing the previous Congress-led UPA regime of not having right intentions, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday asserted that his government was taking quick decisions to ensure faster economic development of the country.

Addressing a rally here on the first day of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s national executive meeting, Modi said sometimes the intentions of a government were more powerful than its policies.

Without naming the Congress, Modi said his government had been facing criticism that it was following policies of the previous United Progressive Alliance government but he sought to debunk this perception.

“Whatever your policy, your intention was not right, ours is. Hence we have gone ahead in the race of development,” he said.

Accusing the opposition of spreading falsehoods on the issue of black money, he said his government had taken several initiatives to curb black money including forming special investigation team and bringing a bill in parliament on illegal money stashed abroad.
