Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan today said that India utilized the time during lockdown to upgrade the health infrastructure, build capacity of healthcare workers and ensure availability of requisite logistics in the country.
Addressing a webinar on Aatmanirbhar Bharat through video conference, he said, today India is self-sufficient in the indigenous manufacturing of PPE kits, masks and also in a position to export the same. Dr Harsh Vardhan said, Atmanirbhar Bharat has become one of the focal areas of the government, around which all economic policies are being drawn up.
He said, Narendra Modi government is focused on bridging the gap between the rich and the poor and on providing equal opportunity to all citizens. The Minister said, Self-reliant India does not mean boycotting foreign goods but believing in the concept of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam. He said, only a self-reliant nation can make its nation paramount.
