Addressing the 72nd edition of Mann Ki Baat, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday talked about the rising demand for domestically manufactured products. He also called upon manufacturers and industry leaders to ensure that our products are world-class at a time when the mantra of 'Vocal for Local' is resonating in every house.
The Prime Minister said supply chains got disrupted due to the coronavirus pandemic all across the world, but we learnt new lessons from each crisis. 'The nation also developed new capabilities. We can call this capability 'Aatmanirbharata' or self-reliance,' he added.
PM Modi suggested to make a list of goods of daily use and analyse which imported articles have unconsciously become part of our lives. He pitched to find out their Indian alternatives and resolve to use products produced by the hard work of Indians.
