BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi Monday pledged to provide good governance if his party was voted to power in the Lok Sabha elections, and said he would never do anything with wrong intent.
"I will work hard to fulfill the responsibilities given to me and will not leave any stone unturned... I will never do anything for myself ever and I will never do anything with wrong intent... I assure you," said Modi at the release of party manifesto.
Modi said the Bharatiya Janata Party's aim was to provide a strong and united India which would enjoy the world's respect. "There should be a strong government in Delhi, so that no one can threaten us," Modi said, his voice a little hoarse from the many election speeches he has been giving all over the country.
He said development and good governance was the summary of the manifesto. "If I have to summarize our manifesto in two words, I will say: good governance and development," Modi said, adding the development should be all inclusive. He also said India should be strong on the fronts of internal and external security. "Whether it is the issue of internal or external security, India should be strong, and capable (to address the challenges). We are committed... There will be zero tolerance on these issues," he said.
On the manifesto, Modi said: "This is not an election ritual. It is not just a document. It reveals our party's direction, our aim."
