Modiji's Man ki Baat

Modiji's Man ki Baat

  • Modiji urged people to make a New Year resolution to substitute foreign-made products for indigenous goods in 2021 “for the sake of the country”.
  • Mr. Modi also asked manufacturers to make sure that Indian-made products are up to global standards, as a part of the government’s Atmanirbhar Bharat (self-reliant India) push and the ‘Vocal for Local’ campaign.
  • He reiterated his earlier appeal to Indians to make a list of products used daily, identify which ones are made abroad and look for Indian substitutes.
  • “Think of things manufactured abroad that have permeated our lives unknowingly, in a way, shackling us down. Let us find out their substitutes made in India and decide that henceforth, we shall use products made with the hard work and sweat of the people of India. You make New Year resolutions every year…this time one has to certainly make a resolution for the sake of the country,” Mr. Modi said.
  • He urged people to buy saffron from Kashmir, which he said had a unique flavour.
  • He said due to the pandemic, the topic of single-use plastic was not discussed much this year, but ridding India of single-use plastic should be another resolution for 2021.
  • Amid the ongoing agitation by farmers from Punjab against the farm laws, the Prime Minister spoke of the sacrifices of Guru Teg Bahadur, Mata Gujari, Guru Gobind Singh and his sons, remembered as the four Sahibzade, and Zorawar Singh and Fateh Singh, adding that it was these kind of sacrifices that kept the fabric of India intact.
  • Leopard population: Mr. Modi also spoke of the increase in the leopard population from 7,900 in 2014 to 12,852 in 2019.
