    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.
