- I just performed my duties but some people have their own measuring tapes and they judge every work of the government on their own terms.
- I have been doing agreements with other countries of the world so that we immediately get to know about overseas transfer of money from India.
- Black Money is an epidemic the country is suffering from since last 17 years and I have to root it out in 17 months.
- The special Investigation Teams have been working against the Black Money hoarders since last two years and have been submitting constant reports to the Supreme Court.
- I gave everyone the opportunity to declare their undisclosed income.
- I was not born to sit on a chair of high office. Whatever I had, my family, my home…I left it for the nation.
