The Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi said Thursday his government is unwavering in its effort to create a corruption free India.
He said this while expressing his satisfaction at the patient and orderly manner in which the citizens are getting the currency notes exchanged in banks following the cancellation of the legal tender character of the high denomination bank notes of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000.
The government of India, headed by Narendra Modi, had demonetized currency notes of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 on Tuesday, saying that the step has been taken to check corruption and the flow of black money.

However, the opposition party Congress says that government’s resource management is not proper because people are not able to get their old currency notes exchanged with the new ones from banks and post offices.
Congress has expressed its displeasure over Indian government’s decision to demonetize currency notes.
Congress also believes that government’s demonetization decision will not deliver the desired results toward checking corruption because most of the illicit money is stored as bullion or invested in real estate or jewellery.
I assure you the Govt is unwavering in its effort to create an India that is corruption free & fruits of development touch every citizen.

He assured that the government is unwavering in its effort to create an India which is corruption free and in ensuring that the fruits of development touch every citizen.
