Prime Minister Narendra Modi criticised the Congress and questioned the party's record on governance and also the scams that erupted before the 2014 elections.
Reporting from Manila, PTI said that the remarks were made while addressing the Indian diaspora in the Philippines capital. No matter what happens, I will transform India, Modi said.
"Before 2014, people used to ask how much money went... in the coal scam, 2G scam... but after 2014, people ask how much money came in," Modi also said.
He asked Indians to work hard to ensure that the 21st century belongs to India and said his government was making every effort to transform the country and take it to new heights. Addressing the Indian diaspora in Manila, Modi said there might be difficulties, but no one could stop India from achieving new heights. "Our efforts are aimed at transforming India and ensuring everything in our nation matches global standards," he said in his 35-minute speech.
Modi told a cheering audience that it was the duty of every Indian to work hard to make it India's century. "I say it is possible," he also said.
