PM Modi says India to strive for self-reliance, use vast resources to produce for global market as well
NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said India must become self-reliant and use its vast natural resources to produce for the domestic as well as the global market.
Addressing the nation from the ramparts of the Red Fort on the occasion of India's 74th Independence Day, PM Modi said in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, 130 crore Indians have pledged to build a 'Aatmanirbhar Bharat'.
"I am confident that India will realise this dream. I am confident of the abilities, confidence and potential of my fellow Indians. Once we decide to do something, we do not rest till we achieve that goal," he said.
The Prime Minister said the country received record foreign direct investments during the last fiscal and even during the coronavirus pandemic, big global companies are looking towards India.
He said the FDI growth was recorded at 18 per cent last fiscal.
PM Modi reiterated the 'Vocal for Local' call and said that India should strive for meeting the needs of the world as well.
In his speech, the PM also wondered how long the country would continue to export raw materials and import finished products.
He said India has vast natural resources and need of the hour was value addition.
"Now we have to move ahead with the mantra of 'make for the world' along with Make in India," he said.
He further said that 'Aatmanirbhar Bharat' does not mean only reducing dependence on imports, but strengthening India's capacity, creativity and skills.
Addressing the nation on Independence Day for the seventh time in a row from Red Fort, he said there are numerous challenges in becoming self-reliant, but there are millions of solutions as well.
"India has always believed that the entire world is one family. While we focus on economic growth and development, humanity must retain a central role in this process and our journey," PM Modi said.
Citing an example of what India can do, he said before the Covid-19 panedmic, the country was not making N-95 masks, PPE and ventillators, but now it is in a position to export such items.

In his independence day speech our PM has touched all subjects that people are facing specially during Coronavirus.He is leading us from Front.He also warned our enemies to be more careful and told them their aggressiveness/Expansionism/Terrorist activities will be dealt with determination by our Armed Forces.
Please stop this atmanirbhar Bulsshit for gods sake!
We never learned to be self reliant
He uses a BMW 7 series car (German), Maybach glasses and Mont blanc pen. Talk about Atmanirbhar, my foot. One of the worst leaders India ever had.
So basically all German things, Car, Glasses and pen. He loves Western things.
Only one question and the go nment should give a straightforward answer to it - Why is the Government avoiding taking name of China directly when referring to confrontation on LAC.
Make in India scam fools no one.
they are still inside Ladakh. And our PM is scared to mention China in his Independence day Speech. Why PM is scared of China? Why is PM Modi making a joke of us? He has surrendered. Its hurting India's image!
Wow , this is the 100th slogan from him ..
This is Feku's Make in India latest news. India has emerged as the top borrower from the Beijing based Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) bank with a whopping $4.5 billion in loans and a billion more for its regional development projects.
The vision of PM Modi will turn India into a global manufacturing hub and give a much needed boost to India's exports!
'Make In India'...sounds good, but you gotta stop buying arms/fighters from foreign countries - like France, US, other countries. Otherwis, it just sound hollow.
why no talk on population control bill
Bak bak Modi. When china was leaving medium scale textile manufacturing, Bangladesh latched on the opportunity and became 2nd biggest exporter of textile in world and India was left behind during Modi rule. Modi is just a slogan master who does nothing on ground.
only slogans, nothing on ground
Indian businessmen have misunderstood it as Import from China and put stamp of Made in India.
India has never seen this kind of economic situation since 1947!!
Amar No Akbar No Anthony
Think the influence of Modiji will turn all Indian's into blatant liar's....
