Narendra Modi says he has been “chosen by God” to undertake the “difficult tasks” for the country.

Kuch log hote hai jinko ishwar kathin kaam ke liye hi pasand karta hai...Kuch log hote hai jo sankato se jujhne ke liye aise hi logo ko parmatma pasand karta hai (There are some people who are chosen by God for undertaking difficult tasks.God likes people who can tackle difficult tasks).

“Mujhe lagta hai shayad mujhe ishwar ne is kaam ke liye pasand kiya hai. Bas apke ashirvad jur jane chahiye. Apke ashirwad jur gaye to kathin se kathin kaam bhi aram se ho jayega..aur main karke dikhaunga... (I think God has chosen me to do this work. Your blessings should also be there. If you give blessings, then the most difficult of works will be done smoothly. And I will do it,” he said.

The BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate was addressing party workers through 3D telecast.

Modi said he wanted to bring about a change in people’s lives, which was possible through hard work and different schemes.

The Gujarat Chief Minister also talked about cleansing politics of criminalisation and said even though it was a difficult task, he would ensure that it is done.

Attacking Congress, he said it has a “dismal record” on women safety and questioned the emphasis by its leaders on women empowerment and women’s safety.

Seeking to corner the Congress, he raked up the ‘tandoor’ case of early 1990s in which a Congress leader allegedly chopped a woman’s body and burnt it in a clay oven in a hotel in Delhi.

He also referred to rape of a woman allegedly by people associated with Congress in Latur in Maharasthra.

“Seven out of the total ten states where maximum number of crimes against women take place are ruled by Congress,” he charged.
