BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, whose election campaign till now has been marked by attacks on the Congress first family and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, but rarely outlined his agenda if voted to power, on Sunday finally articulated his ‘vision’.

His vision spoke about his “idea of India” and a “rainbow” of development to the more tangible 100 smart cities, IITs, IIMs and AIIMS in every State, bullet trains, special courts for black marketeers and even price stabilisation fund. He promised to address the aspirations of growing India, with a prayer: “You have tried them (Cong) for 60 years, give me 60 months.”


Modi, who has addressed 77 elections rallies since his anointment last June as campaign committee chief, got a word of caution from party patriarch L K Advani, who praised his impressive campaign but cautioned the party against overconfidence, as it cost them the government in the 2004 poll.

Modi later tweeted:
