New Delhi, Dec 20 (IANS) The “Make in India” and “Digital India” initiatives will transform the country not only into a global design and manufacturing hub but also empower citizens to access digital services, knowledge and information, BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli has said.
He was speaking at a seminar recently on “Reflection on Make in India and Digital India” organised by O.P. Jindal University, Sonipat, Haryana.
“It is an ambitious programme, which is already in progress and at least what has been achieved over the last year is a good indication,” Kohli said.
“The vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi will get implemented and hopefully by the end of his tenure, we will be able to understand that whether we have been able to achieve a good part of it or not,” he added.
“‘Make in India’ is an idea to try to make it more easy for setting up factories in India and create employment and how to get manufacturing better organised,” he added.
Kohli said these initiatives of the National Democratic Alliance government were a wider set of nation-building initiatives.
“These initiatives will transform India into a global design and manufacturing hub and empower every citizen with access to digital services, knowledge and information.
“These schemes will strengthen our democracy as bridge the gap between the lowest class and the powerful class,” he added.
On the alarming pollution situation in Delhi, Kohli said: “If you live in Delhi, you have no choice. Courts have stepped on environmental issues which is good sign. Urbanisation is a problem but we can plant more trees to reduce it.”
He was replying to a question if the government had any plan to begin a “Green India” programme.
