Modi's statement at the inaugural session of the 15th edition of the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit confirms reports of the government's plan to use the unique identity number for property transactions, a sector where the use of black money is rampant.

Sources in the BJP said it will be like a live video call and women workers from across the state will be able to ask Modi, who is spearheading his party's massive campaign in the assembly polls, questions directly on the "Narendra Modi" app.

Referring to demonetisation, he said it had brought about a "behavioural change" in the country.

PM Modi said his government is committed to a development-centric ecosystem free of corruption and focused on citizens.

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.

In 2014, said the Prime Minister, people wanted and voted for a change in system that will be "permanent, stable and irreversible".

Modi said for the past 70 years, people were fighting the system.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has firmly backed his government's decision to implement GST and Demonetisation. "I think those who feel this country can not be changed using a magic wand are grappling with frustration and disappointment", Modi said.

"By linking Aadhaar to mobile (phones) and bank accounts, we have created such a system that could not have been imagined few years back".

There is fear of being caught and hence the black money that was the basis of the parallel economy has now come into the formal economy. "It's my endeavour to end that fight, change that permanently, irreversibly".

The Aadhaar can be used to ensure cheap ration for the poor, scholarships for students from modest backgrounds, providing subsidy in medical expenses, pension disbursement, subsidies from the government, and basically be the main basis for reaching out to the poor for making their life better.

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