Hitting out at those who are criticizing his government's initiative, Modi said all those people were unhappy, because for the first time after independence the corrupt are feeling the heat. There must have been some changes in the way the government works that the speed of all government plans and their implementation have picked up the pace in last few years, said PM Modi. "I may have to pay a political price for the path I have taken but I'm ready for it".

On December 3, Modi would address campaign rallies in Bharuch in south Gujarat and Surendranagar and Rajkot in Saurashtra, state BJP in-charge Bhupender Yadav said here.

Inaugurating the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit here, Modi said data mining after the note ban is also helping government track down those involved in corruption.

The Prime Minister said "big transformations" do not come easily and a "hauling up of the entire system" was needed. "I think those who feel this country can not be changed using a magic wand are grappling with frustration and disappointment", Modi said. "They voted to change the system; they voted for a system that is permanent, irreversible...a system that is corruption-free, citizen-centric and development-friendly". The black money, which was earlier the base of the parallel economy, has now become part of the formal economy. "It's my endeavour to end that fight, change that permanently, irreversibly". Also the government hopes to ensure financial transparency by pushing people to link Aadhaar to bank accounts and other services. Only because our government was able to take these major changes, in just three years of our government the country's ranking in "Ease of Doing Business" has improved from 142 to 100.

"The day the country will have a technical and digital address for all monetary transactions, organised corruption will be checked to a great extent", he said.
