Prime Minister Narendra Modi in an interview with CNN-News 18, his second interview to an Indian television news channel, spoke on various issues ranging from Indian economy, Dalits,Uttar Pradesh polls and his relationship with the media.

PM Modi lashed out at ‘self-appointed guardians’ of Dalits for creating tensions in the country and giving a political tone to deep-seated social problems. He said that these incidents are needed to be condemned and there is no place for acts such as attacks on Dalits. He added, “This is a social problem, which is deeply rooted. Politics over social imbalances is a disservice to society.”

PM said that many people have a problem with the thought that Modi is a devotee of Ambedkar. “I’m devoted to the development of all Dalits, the oppressed, under-privileged and the deprived. Those who have fed this country with the poison of caste divide have destroyed the country. We must go forward with a purpose,” said Modi.

While rejecting allegations of his political rivals that some of the investigations launched by the government were motivated by political considerations, Modi said he never indulged in political vendetta nor he will do it in the future.

When asked about the economic growth in the country and slow private investments, Modi said ‘short cut will cut you short’. He added that in the last two and a half years, there has been growth in railways, electronic manufacturing and expansion of roads.
