Prime minister-elect Narendra Modi on Wednesday said CAG reports must not be used as a weapon to target political opponents. Modi said this in a farewell speech in the Gujarat Assembly before resigning as chief minister, after being appointed as prime minister.
“I personally believe that CAG reports must not be used for political gains but utilised to find solutions. I introduced such a system here and asked my men to go to the roots of problems (mentioned in CAG reports),” he said. During the course of the Lok Sabha poll campaign, Modi had said that he did not believe in the politics of vendetta and witch-hunting of which he had been a “victim” for the last ten years.
