In an exclusive interview to Zee News on Monday evening, Narendra Modi shared some rather interesting insights about his life and politics. In a first on television, Narendra Modi revealed his views on issues as diverse as foreign policy to secularism. 

In the interview, Narendra Modi claimed that he was like any other person and that he too had his weaknesses, he added that even though he was an OBC he never mentioned it within the BJP and has never made a public display of his humble background.

When asked about the security risks and the large number of threats that the IB believes he faces, Modi said he was never concerned about his security and believes God protects him all the time. This view he claimed was solidified after the blasts that occurred at his rally in Bihar. 

On being asked if what he would do if he did not win the Lok Sabha elections, Modi laughed saying that he’d go back to being a chai-walla if he did not win the elections. On the issue of corruption Modi said he neither wanted to be seen as vindictive or as an impediment to fighting corruption and would prefer if the law took its own course, he promised though there would be no political interference in any criminal cases involving corruption. 

Modi ended the interview praising the youth and stating that the young generation is smart enough to make its own opinion and he hoped that they would go out and vote in large numbers in the largest festival that our democracy offers us.
