Amit Shah: CAPF canteens to sell only indigenous products from 1 June

Home Minister Amit Shah said that the decision was taken in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's appeal to use local products

On Wednesday, the Ministry of Home Affairs said that the Central Armed Forces (CAPFs) canteens will sell only indigenous products from 1 June. Taking to Twitter, Home Minister Amit Shah said that the decision was taken in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s appeal to use local products. The decision will be applicable to all CAPF canteens across the country and will be implemented from 1 June.

The Home Ministry said that 50 lakh family members of about 10 lakh CAPF personnel will use indigenous products.

The comes a day after PM Narendra Modi called for the making of a “self-reliant India” in a televised address. PM Modi had said that lesson from the current state of the world is that becoming self-reliant is the only path before India. “The state of the world today teaches us that a AtmaNirbhar Bharat is the only path. PM Modi said while announcing a Rs 20 lakh crore economic package for the country.

Shah today said that all canteens of the Central Armed Forces (CAPFs) like the CRPF and the BSF will sell only indigenous products from 1 June to 50 lakh family members of about 10 lakh personnel.

Shah said that PM Modi’s appeal for becoming self-reliant will certainly put India on the path of becoming a world leader. “In this direction, the Home Ministry has today decided that all CAPF canteens will sell only indigenous products. This will be applicable to all CAPF canteens of the country from 1 June, 2020. 50 lakh family members of around 10 lakh CAPF personnel will use the products,” Shah tweeted.

Local is not just the need, it is our responsibility also,” he said in his address to the nation. The prime minister said from today every Indian has to become “vocal for their local”, not only to buy local products, but also to promote them proudly.

Time, the prime minister said, has taught us that “we must make the local as a mantra of our life”. “The global brands were sometimes also very local like this. But when people started using them, started promoting them, branding them, felt proud of them, they became global from local products,” he said.

Why Aren't Thousands of Gigabytes of Abusive Images Removed from the Web?

Brazen move to openly legitimize manufactured consent. What is stopping the self-appointed guardians of a new moral code choose journalists who can further the causes the US believes are ‘appropriate’ for other nations? These scribes won’t be ‘independent’ after all, will they?

Some 10y ago I have concluded that hysterical bellicosity of liberals ("permanent war for permanent peace") cannot be explained by ideology but rather by psychology and self-interest.

1 Need to convince others of own virtue by permanently finding the objects of evil and vice which then justify hatred,
2 Lack of responsibility: while wars go on, they can continue w/ dinner parties, vacation, children's exhibitions etc. as before.
