NEW DELHI(PTI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said that he is ready to pay the political price for the steps taken by him for a better India and asserted he would not be deterred.
Mr. Modi, who was delivering the inaugural address at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit in New Delhi, said the government was committed to developing a development-centric eco-system, which was free of corruption and is citizen-centric.
He also said that post demonetization, the 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 the 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.
