Today is the day of Dhanteras. The atmosphere for this day had started building a few days ago. Even the advocacy of Vocal for Local had started. Which continues even today. PM Narendra Modi has also tweeted on this. He made this tweet on the tweet of Biocon chief Kiran Majumdar. On which he has advocated Vocal for Local.
PM Modi tweeted on the social media platform and said that this festival heralds a self-reliant India! After this tweet, there may be an increase in the purchase of locally made goods and the purchase of Chinese goods may be negligible. Due to which China is likely to suffer a loss of Rs 1 lakh crore.
Every Indian in the country does shopping on the day of Dhanteras, which is celebrated two days before Diwali. This day is also considered very auspicious for shopping. According to the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT), a business of Rs 50 thousand crore is estimated to be done across the country on the day of Dhanteras. On the day of Dhanteras, families mostly buy things like gold and silver jewellery, utensils, utensils, vehicles, clothes and electronics.
Indeed, let’s make this Diwali about the hard work of 140 crore Indians.
It is due to the creativity and relentless spirit of entrepreneurs that we can be #VocalForLocal and further India’s progress.
May this festival herald an Aatmanirbhar Bharat! https://t.co/RgWJW6ZHGh
