New Delhi [India], Oct 10 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said that the opposition alliance's only agenda is to dethrone him and that it is not formed for the welfare of people, but for individual benefit.

"Don't worry about the alliance. These people have come together on compulsion. These are people who are out on bail and are looking for ways to safeguard themselves. They don't care for people, their only agenda is 'Modi hatao'," the Prime Minister said, while interacting with booth workers from Raipur, Mysore, Damoh, Karauli-Dholpur and Agra through video conference,

Speaking on the issue of upcoming elections, the Prime Minister said that winning elections is not a matter of pride for the BJP, but an opportunity to serve the people is.

Recounting the achievements of his government, the Prime Minister said, Centre is providing tax incentives to senior citizens.
