Mumbai, Jan 6 (ANI): Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi has criticised the media and his opponents for portraying him in bad light in the recently concluded Assembly elections.

Modi said after his victory in Gujarat, the media and his opponents were criticising the people of Gujarat for electing him and this was not good.

“After the election, people stopped targeting me, but started making the people of Gujarat the target of their attack,” he said while addressing the concluding function of Jain International Trade Organisation (JITO) at NSC ground in Goregaon.

Modi said that after his victory the media and the opponents are saying that the people of Gujarat are bad, and added that if he had lost the elections; the same people would have called the people of Gujarat intelligent.

He said that hi has been the target of criticism of the media and his opponents since 2002.

“If I have done something wrong, I am ready to face the consequences, but I know if I am right then ultimately the victory will be mine,” Modi said. (ANI)
