Imports From China Are Not Wrong But Are Ganesh Idols: Nirmala Sitharaman
Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman questioned whether there was anything wrong with importing from China, but also the idols of Ganesha that we worship at the end.
It is not wrong to import raw materials from our country from different industries.
To this end, she spoke about Tamil Nadu BJP activists in a virtual meeting about her soulmate Nirbhar Bharat Abhiyan. China responded to imports on this occasion.
Nirmala made key comments on the occasion. There is nothing wrong with importing goods and raw materials that contribute to the country’s self-reliance. But Ganesha’s statues are also imported from China.
It was clear that there was nothing wrong with importing goods that would contribute to the growth and employment of the country.
Nirmala reminds us that every year we celebrate Vinayaka’s death. He said that the custom of buying pottery and statues of Lord Ganesha from local potters and sellers has been around for a long time, but now they are importing them from China. She questioned why this situation came up. Asked whether we cannot make statues of Ganesha with clay.
Imports From China Are Not Wrong But Are Ganesh Idols
It is not wrong to import raw materials that are not available in the country and for our industries. Self-reliant India means that imports should not be taken at all, but that the imports are necessary for industrial growth and employment opportunities.
Finally, he asked whether the importation of soapboxes, plastic items and even day-to-day household items such as pooja, would be self-sufficient.
Nirmala Sitharaman said the country’s self-sufficiency is only possible when Indian companies make micro, small and medium enterprises locally. Imports are not wrong, but they are promoting the product and providing employment opportunities. But imports that could not bring benefits such as employment and growth have helped India and Indian economy.
