Eliminating corruption has been our priority: Modi

Eliminating corruption has been our priority: Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently responded to allegations from the opposition regarding the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) alleged use of central agencies to target rivals, especially before elections. He refuted these claims by stating that only three percent of the Enforcement Directorate's (ED) cases are related to politicians, with the remaining 97 percent involving officials and criminals.

During an exclusive interaction with Hindi outlet Hindustan, the Prime Minister reiterated his government's strong stance against corruption, emphasizing that combating corruption has been a top priority for the past ten years. He also countered the opposition's assertions that actions are biased towards targeting political adversaries or non-BJP governed states, stating that anti-corruption measures are being pursued even in BJP-ruled states.

Addressing the narrative that his government only targets political corruption, Mr. Modi asserted that such claims are propagated by individuals facing investigations by law enforcement agencies. This response came amidst criticism directed at his government following ED actions against prominent opposition figures like Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, his former deputy Manish Sisodia, Bharat Rashtra Samithi leader K Kavitha, and former Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren.

The Prime Minister's statements aimed to clarify the government's approach to corruption, highlighting a broader focus beyond political affiliations. His remarks also underscored the government's commitment to upholding transparency and accountability across all sectors, including within its own party and in states governed by the BJP.

Despite facing criticism and scrutiny over these anti-corruption measures, Mr. Modi's government appears resolute in its efforts to combat corruption and maintain public trust in governance.
