PM Narendra Modi has highlighted the importance of the self-reliant economy due to the COVID-19 pandemic, where he insisted to show support to the local business. His catchphrase ‘Vocal for Local’ has been endorsing the local products. There are so many ways indeed to support our local brands because it’s now or never!
The current Government is also trying to give a major boost under the #VocalForLocal movement. The initiative has given a new force to the development of our local economy in various sectors. There are a lot of foreign food brands that have invaded India from various places. We have always welcomed their products without even bothering to check if those brands have a good effect on the economy and health, but the lockdown has made us realize that.
