NEW DELHI, Jan 28 - Stressing that three former chief ministers were �rotting in jail�, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said no one would be spared in the government�s anti- graft drive as he urged the youth to join him in the fight against corruption and black money.
Speaking at an NCC rally here, he also made a strong pitch for the use of Aadhaar, saying it had added great strength to India�s development by curbing leakages and helping government money reach targeted beneficiaries. Aadhaar�s legality has been challenged in the Supreme Court and a Constitution bench is hearing the matter.
Modi said people used to believe that the rich and powerful were not affected by anti-corruption drives and asserted that it was no longer true.
�Sometimes, there was a sense of disappointment that there is big talk about (combating) corruption but the big and mighty go scot-free. Today, you are going through a phase when three former chief ministers are rotting in jail,� he said. � PTI
