PM calls for Swadeshi push
Vows to make India’s handloom, Khadi and the textile sector a world champion; Says Bharat asking corruption, dynasty, appeasement to Quit India
New Delhi Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday stepped up attack on the Opposition that has rechristened itself as INDIA, saying it was an obstacle to India becoming a developed nation and that ‘Bharat’ was calling for corruption, dynast-based politics and appeasement to ‘Quit India’.
Speaking at the National Handloom Day celebration at Bharat Mandapam, Pragati Maidan, Modi also said it is his government’s endeavour to make India’s handloom, Khadi and the textile sector a world champion.
A day ahead of the debate in Lok Sabha on the no-confidence motion against his government, Modi used ‘Bharat’ to describe the country and attacked ‘INDIA’ bloc by calling it “a grave threat” to the country. He also highlighted various steps taken by his government since 2014 for weavers and the handloom sector. Stressing that ‘Vocal for Local’ has become a mass movement,” said the Prime Minister.
