"Despite the bad shape of economy, the government did a good job and headed towards development. There was not a single corruption charge against the government in its last three years' reign," he said.
The minister also said that new allies have joined NDA and this is the symbol of this government's popularity.
Asked if there was any discussion about the presidential elections, the minister categorically denied it, saying "No".
Speaking on relationship with Shiv Sena, Jaitley said, "Shiv Sena is the oldest BJP ally. At times some issues come when they don't agree but Uddhavji today attended the meeting and he was positive."
The NDA also hailed Modi for BJP's stunning victory in recent assembly polls.
"The BJP's victory in recent assembly polls is a mandate on pro poor policies and public welfare schemes of NDA government. The results established Modi as most popular Prime Minister of the country after independence," the statement said.
TDP Chief and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu said that India needs a stable government for sustainable development.
"India is only economy which can achieve double digit growth. Even China can't. This is possible only under Modi's leadership. Sustainability will come with stable government," he said.
