New Delhi, April 7 IANS | 4 months ago

BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi Monday pledged to provide good governance if his party was voted to power in the Lok Sabha election.


Speaking briefly after the release of the BJP's election 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 will be zero tolerance on this issue," Modi said, his voice a little hoarse from the many election speeches he has been giving all over the country.

"If I have to summarize our manifesto in two words, I will say: good governance and development."

The Gujarat chief minister said he would leave no stone unturned to carry out the responsibilities the BJP had thrust on him.

He promised never to do anything for himself and underlined that he "will do nothing with a sense of revenge".

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."
