Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday challenged the Opposition to prove if he had amassed any assets or kept money in any foreign banks.

Addressing an election meeting, Modi said: "I throw an open challenge to these mahamilavati (highly-adulterated) people to show if I have any benami property, farmhouse, shopping complex or money in any foreign bank, or whether I have purchased any property abroad or bought a luxury car."

Prime Minister Modi was there to seek support for BJP and NDA candidates in eastern Uttar Pradesh, which goes to poll in the seventh and last phase on Sunday.

"The people will give a befitting reply through votes to the abuses hurled at me by these mahamilavati parties," Modi said. 

"These mahamilavati people dabble in caste politics and replenish their coffers, build bungalows and palaces for themselves and their relatives."

On the alliance between the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party, he said that the parties, which he said used to abuse each other, will again be at each other's throats the moment results are out.

"I have been the chief minister of Gujarat for more than the terms of Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav combined (as Uttar Pradesh chief ministers).

"I have contested elections and made others contest, but never took the help of my caste (to garner votes)," Modi added.
