New India not ready to accept corruption: PM Modi

New Delhi, Oct 20 (UNI) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said 'new India' is not ready to accept corruption as a part of its system, adding that the union government over the last six-seven years has succeeded in instilling confidence among the population that it is possible to contain corruption.

"New India is no longer ready to accept that corruption is part of the system. It wants its systems transparent, processes efficient and governance smooth," the Prime Minister said.

“We should always keep the motto of 'nation-first' foremost and always judge our work on the touchstone of public welfare and public concern,” he said. He added he will always back such a ‘karamyogi’ whose actions meet these criteria.
