Watch: Union Minister Nitin Gadkari's mantra to make India 'self-reliant'

Union Minister Nitin Gadkari has said that people first need to become self-reliant for India to become 'Aatmanirbhar'.

Speaking at a webinar on Aatmanirbhar Bharat and MSMEs via video conferencing, the Minister said that there is a big need to bring in foreign investment in the country.

Gadkari added that he interacted with foreign investors recently, and they are currently facing a crisis of their own.

Gadkari revealed that most investors he met from the US, UK and Australia revealed that they are not getting proper returns on their deposits.

He said that interests on deposits are way higher in India than in most other foreign countries.

Gadkari said that investors from across the world want to come and invest in India as returns here are good.

Gadkari said that India's strength is its massive skilled manpower and availability of raw material.

He said that with proper initiative, we can increase exports and reduce our imports and this he said will be the key to achieving PM Modi's dream of an 'Aatmanirbhar Bharat'.
