PM Modi Special on NDTV. Full transcript


PM Modi spoke to NDTV on Sunday.

New Delhi:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke exclusively to NDTV during a roadshow on Sunday and predicted a clean sweep of the alliance in Bihar. He said that the BJP will expand its footprint in eastern India in a big way this time, which will easily take the NDA to 400 seats.

Here is the full transcript of the exclusive interview:

NDTV: The tallest public leader India has seen in decades, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is in Pataliputra today and is in this epic battle and has decided to give us time out of his busy schedule.

Thank you so much for talking to NDTV viewers. Six of our viewers are watching you right now. You have done programs across the country. Is Patna's environment any different?

PM Modi: I have visited almost all the states of India. And I can say that Bihar has added many colors to the '400 Par' resolution of BJP and NDA. The atmosphere of Bihar is the same as that of the whole country.

NDTV: Many are speculating that the BJP is on the rise in eastern India, whether you are talking about Bengal or Odisha, even in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. What is your guess?

PM Modi: If I talk out of politics, I have a 2013 speech. I was not even a prime ministerial candidate at that time. So, if we want to develop India, we have to develop Eastern India. East India should be made an engine of development. In the last ten years, I have emphasized on infrastructure, education, health and many such projects in Eastern India. As far as this election is concerned, there is a big storm that will engulf the North, South, East and West. In the East this time the results will be better than before and I am sure they will surprise the people of the country. An example would be Telangana. In Telangana, you will not be able to imagine the results. You will get the same results in Andhra, you will get the same results in Odisha, Bengal. You will get the same results in East India, be it Bihar, Jharkhand, Assam. So, in a way, I can see the Bharatiya Janata Party adding more constituencies to its tally.

NDTV: You are talking about these catchment areas. Guess the spring. What do you think will happen in spring?

PM Modi: In the spring I talked to my colleagues that we have lost a set before, maybe this time we won't lose a single one.

NDTV: We are now close to Charkha Samiti. Tell me what comes to your mind when you think of spring?

PM Modi: Well, I have been here a lot for organizational work and have visited many areas. I'm stuck with a lot of old stuff here.

NDTV: Do you see this election as a referendum or as a governance model fight?

PM Modi: Bharatiya Janata Party has given the country a model of governance. The country has seen the Congress model, the country has seen the Left model, the country has seen the model of coalition governments and the country has seen the full majority model of the BJP and the NDA and it has seen a dynamic government. . Decisive government, risk-taking government. And on that basis we are moving forward.

NDTV: There are a lot of women here. You have created a constituency for yourself because whatever you have done, the Ajula scheme, there are also women-oriented schemes in many states, so do you think women voters are with you?

PM Modi: Empowering women is my commitment and I have led women-led development at the G-20 summit and for that we must give opportunities to women. Women should rise above the traditional things that we have. Like we started the drone didi (scheme) in the villages, like we opened the doors of the army, when we made them pilots in the air force, we sent our daughters to the border, our daughters are protecting the country by going to Siachen. So I have been able to make a psychological change. And women's power will become an additional force in the country's development journey and accelerate the results.

NDTV: Thank you so much for talking to us.
