Yesterday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi described the situation arising due to the corona virus as an opportunity. The Prime Minister has said that the current situation in the world can become an opportunity for India, in such a situation we have to become self-sufficient. PM Modi has given the slogan of becoming a vocal for the local.
The effect of this initiative of PM is also visible. The Union Home Ministry has taken a major decision in this direction.
The Ministry of Home Affairs has decided to sell only indigenous products at all Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) canteens. This order will be applicable to all canteens across the country from June 1. It is estimated that 50 lakh families of about 10 lakh CAPF personnel will use indigenous goods.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah has given information about this by tweeting. Amit Shah wrote in a tweet, “Yesterday, Honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi made an appeal to make the country self-reliant and use local products (products made in India) which will definitely help India to lead the world in the future. The Ministry of Home Affairs has decided that all the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) canteens will now sell only indigenous products.”
He further wrote, “I also appeal to the people of the country that you should use the products made in the country as much as possible and encourage other people too. If every Indian pledges to use the products made in India (Swadeshi), then the democracy of the country can become self-sufficient in next five years.”
