JAMMU, May 27: J&K BJP Vice President, Yudhvir Sethi today launched an awareness campaign to spread information about Swadeshi Swavlamban Abhiyan (self-reliance campaign) to promote local production that will in turn generate jobs.
Flanked by Suresh Bharti and Naresh Abrol, Sethi led the awareness campaign in Panjtirthi area of Jammu city to generate awakening and commitment for ‘swadeshi’ and self- reliance campaign launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi while announcing the Special Economic Package.
“Self reliance for Bharat means ‘swadeshi’ only. ‘Swavlamban’ would be achieved by rejuvenating indigenous industry, including small scale industries, small businesses, artisans, rural industries including food processing industry and other non-farm activities with an aim to generate inclusive growth with impetus on employment,” Sethi said.
He asserted it was unfortunate that policy makers in the past never posed trust in indigenous talent, resources and knowledge and therefore, over emphasized on public sector and later on foreign capital and MNCs.
“PM Modi’s recent call that we have to be ‘vocal for local’ is a pleasant departure from the existing policy based on globalisation and liberalisation, especially foreign capital dependent model of development,” he said.
Yudhvir said that it was the time to revive those local industries that were taken for granted in the era of globalisation.
“It is also time to usher in economic policies that produce welfare, sustainable incomes, help job creation and, all in all, put faith in the people,” he added.
Sethi also informed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself has urged all fellow citizens to download the “Aarogya Setu” App.
He said that it was a fantastic use of technology to combat Coronavirus and by leveraging technology, it provides important information.
Mandal President Jammu East Praveen Kerni, Mandal President Mahila Morcha Neeru Anand, Mandal Vice President Vinod Gupta, Mandal General Secretary Vipan Sharma, Mandal Secretary Suresh Bharti, Mandal Office Secretary Ved Padha, Mandal Treasurer Naresh Abrol, Booth Presidents Bhupeshwar Singh and Harcharan Singh, Rohit Badyal, Varinder Verma, Vishal Sharma, Rakesh Kumar, Nikhil Roy and Sunil Kapoor participated in the awareness campaign.
