Slamming critical NGOs and black-marketeers, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today accused them of conspiring to destabilise his government and "defame" him and asserted that he will carry on with his work without bowing to any machinations.
He said "some people" were not able to digest the fact that a "chai wala" (tea seller) has become the Prime Minister and hence were conspiring all the time to bring him down.He was addressing a farmers' rally here after a brief visit to Chhattisgarh where he said his government is for the poor, dalits and other oppressed and deprived sections of the society as he launched the ambitious 'Rurban Mission' for developing 300 villages across the country as urban growth centres.
While enlisting the measures taken by his government for the welfare of the farmers, a combative Modi told the gathering, "You would have seen in the recent past, there is attack on me all the time. Some people are continuously at it. They are not able to digest how Modi became the Prime Minister, how a 'chai wala' became the Prime Minister, they cannot swallow it."
