‘It’s time to ensure our products are world-class’: Modi at the latest ‘Mann ki Baat’ of 2020
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday urged Indian manufacturers and industry leaders to amplify the call for a ‘voice for the local’ by making more and more indigenous products. He also said that manufacturers must ensure that the country’s products are world-class.
Addressing the final session of ‘Mann Ki Baat’ of the year 2020, Prime Minister Modi said: “I call on our manufacturers and industry leaders that when the people have stepped forward decisively and when the mantra of ‘Vocal for Local’ resonates in every home, it’s time to make sure our products are world class. “
At the beginning of his speech, the Prime Minister said that the country developed new capabilities during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic that helped it become ‘Aatmanirbhar’.
“Thanks to Corona, supply chains were disrupted around the world, but we learned new lessons from each crisis. The nation also developed new capabilities. We can call this ability ‘Aatmanirbharata’ or self-reliance. “PM Modi said.
Speaking about the country’s approach to wildlife preservation, Modi noted that there has been an increase in the lion and tiger population, as well as a significant increase in forest cover. In addition, he attributed this achievement not only to the efforts of the government, but also to those who contributed to the conservation of forests and wildlife.
“India has seen an increase in the lion and tiger population, as well as a significant increase in forest cover. The main reason is that not only the government, but other people, civil society and other organizations are contributing to the conservation of forests and wildlife, ”he said.
During the radio address, Prime Minister Modi recalled the supreme sacrifice of Sri Guru Gobind Singh’s family and said that his martyrdom gave a new lesson to the entire country and humanity. “This martyrdom did a great job protecting our civilization. We are indebted to this martyrdom, ”he said.
