Buy Indian, Be Indian – Indian Products vs Foreign Products
On 12th May, PM Narendra Modi addressed the whole nation and appealed to India to make maximum use of “Swadeshi Products.” To make India “Atmanirbhar,” Prime Minister pushed India to use “Local.” It was 40 minutes speech, in which PM Narendra Modi told that the use of local products would surely help the path for India to lead the world. Buy Indian, Be Indian is a new slogan for our nation.
To make Indian Economy self-reliant and strong we should not only start using and buying but also start promoting the locally-made and locally-sourced products. Our Economy is important and we should make our economy so strong that our dependence on funds on the other countries will be reduced to zero.
“The crisis has taught us that the local is going to help us. So, we should become vocal for local – not only buy local, but advertise it too,” said the PM. Local should become the Mantra for living our life. Buy Indian, Be Indian.
