I&B Minister says through 'Self Dependent' India PM Modi has laid the foundation of future of nation

@PrakashJavdekar
Union Information and Broadcasting minister Prakash Javadekar has said that through "Self Dependent" India Prime Minister Narendra Modi has laid the foundation of the future of nation. In an article written in Urdu daily Avadhnama published from Lucknow, Union Information and Broadcasting minister said that the recently given package for the the self dependence of India will decide the future of the nation.
 
He said that from last 6 years Prime Minister Narendra Modi is successfully leading the country  and his work is three-dimensional. The first dimension of Prime Minister's work is regarding taking some historical International steps which includes removal of article 370, citizenship Amendment Act and paving way for construction of Ram temple.
 
In the Article written on the occasion of completion of one year of Narendra Modi government in its second term Mr Javdekar said that situation  in Kashmir has improved and Internet services has also resumed.
 
Talking about the steps taken in the fight against Corona Mr Javdekar said that India was under strict and longest lockdown so that there should be minimum harm to the people of Nation. 
 
He writes that initially we were not capable in many fields but now we have more than 300 Laboratories for testing and we have become self dependent. Even ventilators are now being produced in India and more than 900 manufacturers have been given the licence for making hand sanitizer and we have produced 87 lakh litre sanitizer till date.
 
He said that around 30,000 crore rupees were transferred into the Jan Dhan accounts of 20 crore women of this country during lockdown and around 9 crore farmers got 2,000 rupees in their accounts while the country was fighting with Corona.
 
On calculation , 10% people in the lowest income group of our society got at least 10000 rupees. He said that the 20 lakh crore rupees package is 10% of GDP and cares about every cluster of society.
 
Independence in defence sector is a major step in these reforms. He said that earlier we were IMPORTING 100% of our weapons but we were not allowing direct foreign investment. Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave approval for 74% FDI in defence sector and imposed restrictions on IMPORT of Defence equipments and weapons. Another major step was allocation of 1 lakh crore for MGNREGA because it gives employment to the needy people and when migrant workers are  returning in a large number there will be more demand for work in rural sector. Union Minister said that overall this is a visionary and historic package for the self dependence of India.
