Speaking at the India Today Conclave in the national capital, Modi said the aspirations of the youth have changed.

"My government is working on a theme of Ek Bharat, Shreshtha Bharat... You called me disruptor-in-chief, I am correcting past mistakes," he said.

"Like the freedom movement, we need a movement for development, where collective aspirations propel growth of the nation," he added.

Asserting that Make in India has emerged as the biggest initiative of India, the PM said his government's focus is on competitive federalism.

"The manner in which the GST was achieved is as important as the GST itself. States have taken ownership of this," he said.

He further highlighted the efforts undertaken by his government to boost the Indian Economy.

"India's economy is being transformed and manufacturing sector is getting a strong impetus," he said.

Modi said he has nation's backing on steps being taken to weed out black money menace. He said that technology must be utilised by the small business to avoid losses.

Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah at the conclave on Friday said that Centre was working for the welfare of poor and has launched several schemes to benefit them.

Shah said the win in UP has proved that people approve BJP-led government's initiative to curb black money menace and corruption.
