Modi said this while responding to a question during an interview with TV 9 channel.

Modi running away from giving an apology: Congress

Q) There have been a series of allegations against you because of Gujarat riots. You have expressed regret but haven't apologised. These people are asking for apology.

A) Who are these people?

Q) Congress.

A) None from Congress have come to meet me. Nor they have even spoken about it. Congress people should first account for their sins before seeking account from others.

Modi was also asked whether he agreed with the statements made by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Finance Minister P Chidambaram that he was a ‘danger’ to the country.

Q) Are you a danger?

A) I have not heard Manmohan Singh speak like this during his ten-year tenure.

Modi also said that he has been taking care of Gujarat for the past 12 to 15 years.

The Gujarat Chief Minister said if there is a danger from any person, it can be also from anyone living in a street or any mohalla.

To a question on perceptions in the BJP that there was a 'Modi wave', he said, "This is a BJP wave and not Modi wave.”

"Modi is not bigger than the party," he added.

The Gujarat Chief Minister also replied in the negative when asked if the 2014 Lok Sabha elections was ‘Modi-centric’.

He expressed confidence that the BJP-led NDA will get 300+ seats.

When asked about party veterans LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi not getting parliamentary seats of their choice, Modi said," I don't decide seat distribution."

Advani and Joshi were said to be keen on contesting from Bhopal and Varanasi respectively before they were persuaded to enter the poll fray from Gandhinagar and Kanpur.
