He added that becoming self-reliant means we need to reduce dependency on other countries. PM Modi said that we need to find ways to manufacture everything we import from other countries.
"Imagine you are going somewhere in a Mercedes. You stop your car and buy something from a person sitting at the footpath. It can change his life for ever. This will be a proud moment for that seller. It is time for us to be local for vocal," he added.
Talking about India’s battle against coronavirus, PM Modi said that things were more difficult for India as it faced multiple challenges at the same time.
“The world is fighting Coronavirus, India is fighting that too. But there are other issues also. Flood, locusts, hailstorm, fire in oil well, small earthquakes, two cyclones - we are fighting all of these together,” PM Modi said.
