1 min read

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that “action against corruption and corrupt people” has been the priority of the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre.

Addressing a gathering after inaugurating the National Academy of Customs, Indirect Taxes and Narcotics (NACIN) at Palasamudram in Sri Satyasai district, Modi said that “taxpayers’ money was being utilised properly, and whatever taxes are being collected are returned to the people in different forms”.

He also said that the citizens have “saved nearly Rs 2.5 lakh crore in tax after the BJP came to power”, and 10 crore fake names have been deleted from the documents.

“In the last 10 years, we have empowered the poor, farmers, women, and youth… Today, every paisa sent from Delhi (Centre) reaches the bank account of the beneficiary who is entitled to it. Fight against corruption and action against corrupt people has been the priority of the government,” said Modi, adding that tax reforms such as the implementation of GST and simplified income tax system were brought in during the last 10 years, resulting in record tax collection.

Citing a report released by NITI Aayog, Modi said almost 25 crore people have been lifted out of poverty in the last nine years, by the efforts of his government.
