Come, make in India: PM Modi woos global vaccine manufacturers
NEW DELHI: PM Narendra Modi on Saturday made an important effort to put India on the front-line of the global fight ag inst Covid-19, by inviting global vaccine manufacturers to “come and make vaccines in India”.
“I, today, invite vaccine manufacture around the world — come, make vaccines in India,” PM Modi said while addressing the 76th session of the UN General Assembly.
“I want to give this information to UNGA that India has developed the world's first DNA vaccine, which can be administered to all people above 12 years of age. Another mRNA vaccine is in its last phase of development. India’s scientists are also engaged in the development of a nasal vaccine for Corona,” he said.
The invitation comes at a time when inadequate supplies and inequitable distribution of vaccines have raised the fear that the twin issues might delay global recovery from the pandemic and may appear to be a move to transform India’s image as a cause of concern that it looked after the country was ravaged by the “second wave”, into an emergency responder and part of the solution. India earned considerable goodwill when the Modi go nment launched “Vaccine Maitri” initiative to reach vaccines to the under-resourced capitals at a time when developed countries stubbornly refused to look beyond their shores. The second wave derailed the vaccine initiative as New Delhi decided to first look after its own.
Highlighting India’s achievements and progress in Covid vaccine development despite limited resources, the PM said the country lives by ‘Seva Paramo Dharma’ (service is the main duty) and is engaged in vaccine development and manufacturing with full dedication.
Underlining the go nment’s latest decision to resume export of anti-Covid jabs, the PM said: “Understanding its responsibility towards humanity, India has once again started giving vaccines to the needy in the world.”
Come, make in India but never set up unit in Punjab.
worst period under Modi. people are suffering. see your petrol price.
Worst PM ever now...
MODIJI HAS MADE EVERY INDIAN PROUD BY HIS EFFORTS TO MAKE INDIA GREAT THROUGH HIS RELENTLESS EFFORTS to be the manufacturing hub of the world. Modi-baiters have only single agenda of blaming him for each and every step he takes in this direction.

India is self reliant and achieved greatest success on covishield so PM Modi has ly pitched for global invite
World knows how people are suffering under Modi. Worst PM only working as BJP parcharak
What is positive is that every word of Modiji is for the interest of the country.
Pathetic comments by khangressis- But most Indians see the development and difference between Congress and BJP and if they keep bringing Modi back, that is what matters!!
Mr Narendra Modi is making a fool of himself.

Unfortunately, Indians also are getting fooled in the process..
Jai Hind, Great PM Modi ji
Modi has put India on the path to global dominance through Vaccine Maitri" and "Make in India"! Today, India does not go with the begging bowl to the rich countries. It instead, invites them to manufacture in India and r rewards in the form of profits.
You should have expned reasons to left Ford from India? Loss of indian people jobs.
You never talk about the failure of your go nment.
and he will take credit that he made
Excellant. Trade and infrastructure is the new mantra of global leadership. A rich country is a successful country. Now many companies r moving to india anyway with Apple moving away from China to india. Modi has excellant rapport with top corporations. So proud of Modi. !!

Yes come and pay high taxes, live life without self respect, follow out useless rules, get harrased by police and netas/goons, welcome to hindu taliban
worst prime minister. big liar. wants to rule India for ever.
At a time when many foreign companies like Ford are closing their shop in India, this clarion call by Modi remains to be seen if it will have any takers ? FDI and private investments can proliferate only in an eco environment of reasonable and fair taxes, consistency in policies, robust judiciary, a reliable media, communal amity etc., all of which have been squandered under his watch.
He cannot call vehicle manufacturers anymore and so calling vaccine manufacturers. He must be disappointed to see no one is coming to make in India but those who came are running out like Ford, Harley and GM. The sy em is so corrupt from the bottom to top that no one could start anything here.
Efforts to make India a manufacturing hub should be more focused towards the area of strengths
