CHANDIGARH: Recently in an address to the nation our Worthy Prime Minister has given a new narrative to the nation and that was BE VOCAL ON LOCAL means that India should work towards being AATAMNIRBHAR. Now the First and Foremost question that arises is when PM took over the reigns of our Country the first thing that he came up with is MAKE-IN INDIA , precisely it was announced on 25.09.2014 . How this new narrative is different from announcements of about 6 years back. Moreover after that also from time to time country men keeps on listening about SKILL INDIA, STAND UP INDIA, DIGITAL INDIA and so on, but nothing substantial has been done on this front in 6 Years. I think the basic fallacy lies in the intentions behind the narratives. If Indian Government is really serious about doing what they say then they must start looking towards change of existing laws formed by previous Governments. Like for example to get a Patent in our country it takes about 6 Years whereas in China or some other country it takes about only One Year. This is major factor behind Investment preferences tilted more towards other countries.

Moreover upto 2016 the economy of our country seems to be running like a Bullet train but afterwards the train has been derailed badly. Even before the pandemic stood havoc amongst all the countries All the international Rating Agencies has downgraded the Indian ratings and that is the major Worrying factor for India to move ahead. The worrying factor ahead is though there is no doubt about the sincerity of our Worthy PM but he doesn’t seem to have confidence in others and wants to control everything himself. One thing he has to understand that there are always limitations in a single point control. He must appoint proper Economists at Vital places like the Chair of FM or The Governor of RBI and most importantly listen to them and other sane voices about Economic Revival of INDIA.

So long as we are not sincere enough to Change ourselves and the Old way of working AATAMNIRBHAR BHARAT will remain another JUMLA which has been made keeping in view the next approaching elections and keep people busy in other narratives rather than concentrating on the real issues concerning INDIA.
