Buy Indian, Hold Weddings In India Modi Tells Citizens
NEW DELHI, (IANS) – Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday questioned those families who organize weddings in foreign countries and urged people to hold such functions within India.
In the 107th episode of his monthly broadcast program of ‘Mann Ki Baat’, the Prime Minister said, “The wedding season has commenced now. Some trade organizations estimate that there could be business of around Rs 5 lakh crore during this wedding season. While shopping for weddings, all of you should give importance to products made in India only.”
“If we celebrate the festivities of marriages on Indian soil, among the people of India, the country’s money will remain in the country. The people of the country will get an opportunity to render some service at your wedding… even poor people will tell their children about that occasion. Why don’t we hold such wedding ceremonies in our own country? It is possible that the kind of system you want may not be there today, but if we organize such events, systems will also develop,” he said.
